4 catchy pieces for piano by Mirka Vähtäri
Make today Piano Day. You won’t be disappointed! These pieces dream, dare, swing – and will get you hooked. They will also develop your skills and technique with their carefully-devised pedagogical approach. Some of the pieces are easy and suitable for beginners, but there are also some for more advanced pianists. And a few of them are for four hands.
“I simply loved this collection. I felt I was opening a treasure chest! The compositions are fresh, pianistic, and sit well under the hands. They are also well thought-out pedagogically providing practice in various techniques and especially interpretation (e.g. The Dreamer). Some of the pieces are sure to be real hits: Rain and Waves is brilliant for the first few piano lessons: a welcome alternative to Chopsticks!”
