Three Sonatinas - Poe

These three simple and graceful sonatinas are a perfect way to introduce the basics of sonata form to beginning players. John Robert Poe has constructed these gems with a careful eye to the variety of ways composers organize multi-movement sonatinas, using sonata-allegro form, ABA movements, rondo form and even an example of the theme and variations form. Shaggy Dog Sonata, Best Friend Sonatina, and Seaside Sonata beautifully exhibit Poe’s mastery of writing for beginning piano students.
