Music 198: Fields of summer

This is the seventh piano piece in “A Third Little Suite in Fifteen Sketches” and called “Fields of Summer”.

The picture is taken near my house, which is behind the gnarled trees on the left. As can be seen, it’s not been a dry summer thus far.

There are two links: one to the audio file (mp3) and one to the printable written music (pdf).

Music 195: Leapfrog

Hello All

This is the fourth piano piece in “A Third Little Suite in Fifteen Sketches”. It’s called “Leapfrog”.

Gosh! If I had to play leapfrog these days I’d need two step ladders: one to get up and one to get down. However, I can play “Leapfrog” on the piano!

Music 162-176: Little Suite in Fifteen Sketches

Hi Everyone!

This is to “advertise” my “Little Suite in Fifteen Sketches” for the piano. The style of music is not everyone’s cup of tea, so I’m offering them as a separate link. Clicking here will download a pdf file that contains the written piano music and each piece has a link so you can hear the music. It’s all free! Some of you will think the music has got some wrong notes in it, but I always think that wrong notes make for a lot of fun!

Maybe some famous pianist (better than me!) will download them and play the pieces at a concert resulting in a standing ovation. Or a film star might use the music in an award-winning movie. Or maybe a ballet company will use the 15 little sketches to tell a story – perhaps revolving around the Commedia dell’Arte characters.

One of my new year resolutions was to write 15 little sketches for piano during the year. To my surprise it’s already been done! Who said I couldn’t stick to New Year resolutions!

I hope everyone is well! Don’t feel guilty if you don’t like these! I adore them!!!
