A Waltz to Remember

New Issue at The Music Rack presents:

A Waltz to Remember by Glenda Austin
from the Willis Music Company

Here's another great title from Ms. Austin, who's written a touching and sentimental piece dedicated to those people effected by the disasters around the world recently. It is (obviously) in 3/4 time and in the key of D Major. The left hand will remind you of Erik Satie's Gymnopedie, and the piece has a great melody that switches from flowing and relaxed to almost dramatic in the chordal sections towards the middle and end. This is definitely a waltz to be remembered!

If you're interested in this title and wish to order a copy, contact us here at the store, and if you mention that you saw it on Facebook, you can get 20% off for a limited time!

[08/22/11]   It's still hot in Houston, but on this first day of school (at least in Klein ISD), our A/C is working well! Stop by and cool down.

Souvenir of Paris by Timothy Brown

New Issue at The Music Rack

It's been a while since we had one of these, but I couldn't pass up showing this title to everyone. Here's a description from the publisher:

Written in the key of E minor and in 4/4 time, this piece has a wistful, lyrical melody that provides students practice in "singing out" the right hand melodic line. The left hand consists of a broken chord accompaniment creating an eerie, nostalgic mood. Students will love portraying a Parisian atmosphere.

If you're interested in a copy of this title, contact us here at the store, and if you mention that you saw it here, you can get 20% off for a limited time!

River Flows in You

halleonard.com After over a year of requests for this title, Yiruma's "River Flows In you" is now available in print! This new age style piano solo has been requested by hundreds of piano students after it was associated with the Twilight movie series.

The Juggler

New Issue at The Music Rack presents:

'The Juggler' by Judith Strickland

The Juggler is a short but fun to play piece in 4/4 time and in A minor. It's great for anyone who wants an up-tempo arpeggio work out for the right hand that still sounds good! The left hand is not complicated, which allows the player to focus on the critical dynamic changes in the right hand that make the piece really interesting to listen to.

If you would like a copy of this title, you can contact us directly via phone or email.

Also, for a limited time, you can get this title at 20% off. Just mention that you saw it here on the page when you order it!

Passacaglia by Bear McCreary

New Issue at The Music Rack:

"Passacaglia" from Battlestar Galactica by Bear McCreary
This is an excerpt from one of the songs from the TV series Battlestar Galactica.
It has a hauntingly beautiful left hand melody throughout most of the song, and although originally for strings, it translates very well to the piano, as long as the right hand does not overpower the melody. There are some tough stretches, and it's a challenge to keep the focus on the melody at times, but any fan of the series will enjoy playing through the pieces in this book.

This book contains selections from the series re-written by the original composer for piano solo, including some easy piano arrangements, and a certain piano duet from towards the end of the series.

If you're interested in obtaining a copy of this title, give us a call at the store during business hours or email us. Mention that you saw it on the page and for a limited time, get 20% off*!

Come down to The Music Rack and check out our newly re-filed teaching sheets! If you're a big fan of Melody Bober, Robert Vandall, or any composer of teaching material, you can now browse teaching sheets by composer, instead of title. We hope you'll find some new pieces by your favorite composers to enjoy and teach.

Keep in mind, if you can only remember the title of the song you want, let anyone at the store know and we can find the composer's name in our computer system.

New Issue at The Music Rack presents:

'Twilight Tarantella' by Glenda Austin
performed by Janet G.

Twilight Tarantella is a later elementary title in a minor and (of course) 6/8 time which, unlike most tarantellas, is not to be played at top speed. It should in fact be played, according to the composer, 'Stealth-like'.

The song jumps all over the keyboard, from 4 ledger lines above the treble, to the very lowest 'A' on the keyboard. The varying dynamics make the music dramatic and make you pay attention to the details. The left hand stays staccato through most of the piece, there are a few instances of pedal use, and a climactic ending that builds in speed and volume.

Big thanks to Janet for volunteering to play this for us!

If you're interested in this title, you can order it here:

or you can contact us directly via phone or email.

Also, for a limited time, you can get this title at 20% off. Just mention that you saw it here on the page when you order it!

Prairie Sunrise

New Issue at The Music Rack presents:
"Prairie Sunrise" by Melody Bober

An intermediate solo from Alfred's Signature Series, this title has a very gentle opening and closing passage, with a wonderful flowing main theme and pedal runs throughout the entire piece. The left hand changes from chords to arpeggio runs and back again, and a keychange in the middle really brings to life the sun coming up over the prairie.

If you're interested in purchasing this title, you can find it here:
http://www.musicrack.com/p-328729-prairie-sunrise-piano.aspx
or you can call or email us directly.
