The calming nature of June Armstrong’s Butterfly will appeal to young learners, and in this film we enjoy Liz and Alex’s performances. This is a great learning piece because both parts are very accessible to beginners. Butterfly features in Piano Star Duets, a book of newly commissioned duets for young learners.
The secondo part of Weird Polka is a fun challenge for students who are wanting to improve their accompaniment skills. The staccato nature of the part makes it a great learning tool, a challenge to get in line with the more fluid primo part. Neugasimov is a well-known composer and also features on Grade 3 of the new ABRSM Piano syllabus.
In this short film, Karen Marshall’s Apache Drums is brought to life by Liz and her son, Alex. The ‘knock on wood’ effects will be fun for any young student to master. Piano Star Duets is full of newly commissioned pieces, watch our film for a taster!
