Kids just want to have fun, and they will have weeks of fun with this delightful collection of late-elementary piano solos by master composer Phillip Keveren. Each solo explores a different mood or conjures up a vivid musical image that young pianists will thoroughly enjoy interpreting at the piano. The rich musicality of these solos makes it hard to believe that they remain in 5-finger patterns throughout. Playful and imaginative, these pieces will win the hearts of students of any age. 5 solos: Mouse on a Mirror • Quick Spin in a Fast Car • A Misty Morning • Summer Cloudburst • Downhill Daredevil.
8th-note passages, parallel and contrary motion; Cut time; 8va; some hand-position shifts, but for the most part, all pieces remain in 5-finger positions with no finger crossovers or scale patterns. Keys: C, G, and F.
