This series will highlight original pieces and arrangements from my own catalog and will include some of my own personal favorites, as well as some of my best-selling, most popular titles for each level.
Today I am highlighting showstopping recital pieces for beginners! Keep reading to see more....
I love playing duets with my beginners, especially if it is their first recital experience. Not only does a teacher duet part make any piece sound more sophisticated, students benefit from the confidence boost that playing with their teacher beside them can bring.
Looking for a true showstopper that will thrill students and audiences alike? Check out this duet arrangement of the classic rock 'n roll song "Great Balls of Fire." Sheet music available HERE.
(Also available for late elementary, early intermediate, and intermediate piano solo! See all available versions HERE.)
My "Ready to Rock" collection is full of original teacher/student duets that will make your beginners shine!
The first piece in the collection, "Showdown," has been a special favorite with my beginners and sticks to just the notes in C position.
