Very excited to announce the release of two elementary solos, designed to be taught by rote/ear, Make Way for Mischief and Cold Blast, available at laurensonder.com!
The student composition below was inspired by a piece called Starry Night from 70 Keyboard Adventures of the Little Monster (Volume 2). The dark notes are fixed pitches, the stars indefinite pitches. The student called it, "Star Bright. "
This student's composition, an assignment from his book Tales of a Musical Journey by Irina Gorin, had some mixed meter patterns and I thought it would be cool to harmonize it. He really enjoyed the sound and called it, "The Magical Forest."
