For Michael, age 15: Michael loved rhythmic pieces and wanted something dramatic, but with some calm parts. He liked improvising with left hand broken octaves because of the driving sound. He wasn’t super quick at reading and learning new music, but wanted something a bit longer than his normal pieces to play at our studio recital. So I created a longer piece with lots of patterns and repeating motives. You may notice the middle section is sort of in a “Chaconne” style as it builds up to a recap of the previous melody.
