Instructional piano/vocal pieces – easy to advanced intermediate

 

Teresa’s easy to intermediate instructional pieces for pianists and singers

 

Girls ~ Marina Diamandis’ in-your-face rant appeals powerfully to girls and women intent on not swallowing pop-culture’s perfectionist koolaid. So it deserves a solo piano version with attitude! Teresa’s arrangement is a just-right stretch for teens with advanced intermediate piano/keyboard skills.

Love Like You (End Credits) ~ Teresa’s instructional arrangement of this evocative song is for young vocalists and keyboard players or guitarists, designed as a recital piece. The piece will be most effective with the guidance and support of a teacher.

Nights in White Satin ~ This evocative meditation on a classic Moody Blues song is just right for beginning pianists and keyboard players who have gained some note-reading skills and dexterity. As an instructional arrangement, it includes fingerings.

The 30th ~ This easy instructional piano arrangement is for young vocalists who sing AND play and want to accompany themselves! It provides beautifully spare but complex chord voicings with which the young musician, once comfortable changing chords, can make her mark with her own particular rhythmic spin. The piece will be most effective with the guidance and support of a teacher.

This Little Light of Mine ~ Teresa’s upbeat, empowering version of this classic is for young vocalists and intermediate pianists of any age. As an instructional piece, the piano accompaniment includes fingerings. The piece will be most effective with the guidance and support of a teacher.

Trumpet Voluntary ~ This dignified march makes a lovely recital piece for young pianists whose note-reading skills and dexterity are developing beautifully. As an instructional piece, it includes fingerings. The piece will be most effective with the guidance and support of a teacher.

We Own the Night ~ Teresa’s instructional arrangement of this Zombies 2 hit had to happen because a student was determined to play it and an educational version didn’t exist! The arrangement provides a nice stretch for young pianists and keyboard players who have developed early intermediate music reading skills and technique. It includes fingerings. The piece will be most effective with the guidance and support of a teacher.
