Through the Glass is a mid elementary piano solo that will be a special piece for any piano student who has a pet fish. It gives a warm musical hug to those slippery pets whom we love but just can’t hold. The lyrics have a tender tone and bring a unique perspective on having a fish as a pet.
The level of Through the Glass
Through the Glass is mid elementary. The smallest note value is the quarter note. The piece is in a comfortable E Major position, but the accidentals are written in so students do not have to be concerned with reading a key signature. The song uses several octaves of the piano, but is always in a comfortable position with patterns that can be easily remembered.
Through the Glass uses the damper pedal with only 10 pedal changes. The piece uses a Lydian scale in a few places, giving it a “watery sound” without using a whole tone scale.
