Series: Willis Publisher: Willis Music Composer: Claudette Hudelson

Piano Level: Late Elementary

Description: It has a waltz-type sound. It's written in d minor and parallel D Major. The RH uses several different positions. The LH stays in a d minor 5-finger position.

Purpose: Teaches RH phrasing and “lifting”, contrasting dynamics mp to mf, and is an exercise in shading.

Suggestions for Instruction: I point out LH first to show how it stays in one place. That makes the student think the piece is easier.

Use RH alone for shaping a phrase and “breathing”.

Other Information:

The title came from another piano teacher who loves to come up with interesting titles to give me to write pieces to fit.

Key: D minor
