Something in My Piano

2017-11-14T13:48:17-06:00

Something in My Piano I was sitting at the piano one day, enjoying my new studio in our small, brand new house. I had just finished playing when I glanced down at my feet and saw the most horrific looking, hairy, gigantic spider coming out from under my upright piano! Though I'm not normally outrageously scared of spiders, I screamed and absolutely lost my mind as I jumped on top of the piano bench. The rest of the story is in the program note of this piece, but that explains the inspiration for this rather creepy song! Perfect for beginners, this early elementary piece lets students slap the keys (as if to kill the spider emerging from the keys) and uses easy and fun patterns using the whole keyboard to wow the audience!

You Don’t Scare Me Now!

2017-11-14T14:00:22-06:00

You Don't Scare Me Now! Here's an audience pleaser that will surprise everyone! Students have been begging me to write another piece with "extra-musical" sounds like knocking or screaming like are in "Candy Nabber" and "A Scream on Halloween." So "You Don't Scare Me Now" will be a fun, loud surprise for everyone at the fall recital! The piece starts out creepy and slow, then picks up with a fun, easy syncopated melody with knocks, taps, snaps, and REALLY LOUD sound on the piano! But Wait! The monster is invited to make the loudest noise that it can because "You don't scare me now, you don't scare me now!...I can make a bigger noise than you!" Students then play an amazing glissando (with the help of an index card) that wows the audience at the end! Details: Level: Mid-elementary -quarter, halves, wholes, ties, syncopation, extra-musical sounds Pages: 6 pages, 3 pages of music, cover included!
