Charles T. Griffes: Pieces For Children

Books | Piano

Publisher: G. Schirmer
Artist: Charles Griffes
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
Charles Tomlinson Griffes is said to have originally written these pieces to assist in his own teaching of the Piano, as he could not find any music suitable for his students. He published them under the pseudonym 'Arthur Tomlinson' - combining his brother's name with his own middle name - as he did not want his name as a 'serious' composer tarnished by association with simple childrens' music!

It seems inconceivable that he would have been seriously embarassed by them, since the pieces themselves are well-crafted, attractive and interesting educational material. This book includes 'Six Short Pieces', 'Six Bugle-Call Pieces', 'Six Patriotic Songs', 'Six Familiar Songs' and 'Six Pieces For Treble Clef'.
