This is the second volume of Modern Piano miniatures by American-Armenian composer, Dianne Goolkasian Rahbee and is intended for Intermediate to early Advanced pianists. The natural musicality present in this tremendous collection of studies demands the same kind of careful attention that we expect from the standard canon of repertoire. These teaching pieces follow in the modern tradition of pedagogical works by Bartók, Kabalevsky, and others; they are written to challenge a student's mind, fingers, imagination, and soul.
The style is varied allowing students to tackle a broad range of study and practice such as Perfect fourths, Staccato and Seconds. Contents include: Floating In Space, Here and There, Harlequin Waltz, Popcorn Toccatina and more! Arranged in order of difficulty, it is a practical volume that offers students interesting and absorbing study material.
The FJH Contemporary Keyboard Editions Series focuses on the best contemporary music for the keyboard form the late 20th and early 21st centuries. These collected works have all been chosen for their strong musical voices and their artistic and pedagogical merits.
