Program Notes

This colorful book of easy piano nursery rhymes is perfect for beginner piano students. The 29 page book includes twelve easy songs to play for fun or perform at your next recital.

Each piece is arranged to teach musical form. The first sixteen measures of each piece are a color coded piano arrangement in C major. This is called the exposition section. The musical theme is “exposed”. The next 8 measures are called development. The music moves into a new key (G major). In every piece the base line in the development section is always the same. The final 8 measures are a recapitulation of the musical theme in the original key of C major. I hope you enjoy playing these pieces, and I would sincerely appreciate hearing your feedback concerning your experience either teaching or learning this music. Please write to
