8 lyric pieces for solo piano intermediate grades
The journey through adolescence can be a dark and lonely experience and there is often a tendency for young people to immerse themselves in melancholia. In this collection, is an opportunity to give young people the experience of finding their own voice in the music.  This can be intimidating and often a gentle hand is needed to encourage stepping out beyond one’s comfort zone.  That gentle hand has been extended by making suggestions for dynamics while allowing for and encouraging personal interpretation; by allowing the opportunity for the young person to construct the music in their own way and according to their mood on any particular day; and in providing a step by step walk through rubato – often the most intimidating technique as it requires us to risk so much and put so much of ourselves out there.   Composed 2014-2015.
