Claudette Hudelson Later Elementary Level
Description: It has a waltz-type sound. It's written in d minor and parallel D Major. The RH uses several different positions. The LH stays in a d minor 5-finger position.
Purpose: Teaches RH phrasing and “lifting”, contrasting dynamics mp to mf, and is an exercise in shading.
Suggestions for Instruction: I point out LH first to show how it stays in one place. That makes the student think the piece is easier.
Use RH alone for shaping a phrase and “breathing”.
The title came from another piano teacher who loves to come up with interesting titles to give me to write pieces to fit.
