Duets for Students and Teachers
« on: June 24, 2015, 01:03:19 AM »
As a piano instructor, I have noticed that there is a lack of four-hand pieces where the primo part is significantly easier than the secondo.  To remedy this, I have been writing some pieces for my students where the primo part does not extend beyond a fixed five-finger pattern.  I have had success with this in my teaching and now I am looking to share my music with other pianists too.  I would like to be able to sell some of my compositions eventually, but for now, I simply want to get them out so that they can be played. 

My goal with these duets is to write some music that is simple and fun to play.  I consider it a nice departure from the boring “kiddie” books that we have all been subjected to.  I would appreciate any feedback or constructive criticism that you might have regarding these pieces.  Let me know what you think!
