Eight Pieces – Solo Piano, by composer and educator Andrew Kear Harrod, features a collection of accessible works for students of all ages. Harrod’s compositions are designed to be fun, playable and educational and suitable for the intermediate pianist. Through multiple approaches and processes of composition, the pieces represent different ways to create styles, techniques, textures, and moods to enhance the pianist’s musical appreciation, challenge technique and develop musical skills. Harrod’s inspiration for composition has increasingly stemmed from an array of sources, however unexpected, and has often been sparked by a wide variety of many different stimuli. The pieces in this book, under titles such as Inner Sense, Air, Sirocco and others, are inspired by stories, places and faces from the last decade. It is hoped that these eight original pieces will become a mainstay in the future pianist’s repertoire.
Eight Pieces – Solo Piano contains:
- Black Ice
