Piano Duet

Across the Oceans Deep and Blue (piano 4 hands)

By John Peterson

Regular price $25.00 Sale

Piano four hands, c.5'00. 

The music of Across the Oceans (Deep and Blue) attempts to evoke the image of a vast expanse of ocean as it extends towards an endless horizon. Although this expanse of ocean can at first glance seem to be unchanging, it is always in constant motion, with the ebb and flow of the waves, and the blue colours are in constant variation. Sailing across the ocean can be an exciting but also sometimes slightly fearful experience, as we can on occasion become aware that the power of the sea is beyond our control. Thus, while the music is, for the most part, content to evoke a gently flowing and relatively peaceful experience, there are moments that hint at the more turbulent and unpredictable nature of the ocean itself. Much of the harmonic material for this music is derived from a vertical arrangement of ascending perfect 5th intervals, (an ascending C-G-D-A chord, for example) creating chords that are wonderfully rich in harmonic sonorities. The intent here was to evoke the mysterious depths of the ocean, and the power of these bodies of water.

      Double Trouble Let's Begin

      By Joanne Burrows, Ann Carr-boyd, Jocelyn E Kotchie

      Regular price $35.00 Sale

      18 diverse piano duets -  for beginner students.

      The duets include small pieces that can be learnt aurally, by rote, a selection of pieces using various five-finger and middle C positions that could be read by two beginners, and others where the tonal qualities of the piano can be explored.
      It is never too early to get students with a partner of like age and ability to play together. The duets in this book have been ‘road tested’ by students aging from 6 years to 12 years old, as well as fellow teachers. It is amazing how playing with someone else improves the student’s rhythmic awareness and develops their aural skills while having fun.

      A delightful collaboration between three amazingly talented composers - Ann Carr-Boyd, Jocelyn E Kotchie and Joanne Burrows. Double Trouble Let's Begin precedes their three other duet books Double Trouble Books 1, 2 and 3.

      Drive (piano four-hands)

      By John Peterson

      Regular price $30.00 Sale

      For piano four hands, c.4'50.  Grade 7

      Drive is a rhythmic work whose impetus is derived for the use of almost constant quaver motion within a 13/8 time signature. The relentless quaver figurations give the impression of speed and constant movement, while the often smoothly legato style melodies sometimes form a strong contrast with the rhythm, an effect that suggests security and control in amongst the hectic pace of the music.
