This collection will become a teacher’s “go-to” for recital and festival repertoire at the mid-inter-mediate level. Students (and parents) are excited by the impressive and diverse musical effects they create. Showtime! uses damper pedal and parallel chords (both hands) moving up and down the keyboard to create a big sound. A Winter’s Dream and Lullaby for a Ladybug are lovely ballads featuring lyrical melodies. Swirling Snowflakes has showy hand-over-hand arpeggios. Fiesta! provides an authentic Spanish flair and Llama Rumba lends a Latin rhythm adventure. Three additional “treasures” in 3/4 meter round out the set.
