“Candy Corn Jive” (Late Elementary Level): My own original piece, featuring a Jerry Lee Lewis-style teacher duet that will have your students rockin’ and rollin’! Click the link to see and hear this piece on Sheet Music Plus.
“Simple Canon” (Early Intermediate Level): My own medley of two favorite pieces: “Simple Gifts” and “Pachelbel Canon,” appropriate for both Thanksgiving and Christmas! Click the link to see and hear this piece, part of my "Medley Magic" songbook available from Piano Pronto.
