Do you teach students who are fans of Twilight, The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner, The Fault In Our Stars, or anything deep, powerful and emotional?
Have you been searching for a motivating project for your teenage piano students?… Something they will be excited about? Something that makes them want to practice like crazy, yet still has educational merit? Are you tired of hunting for sheet music that will peak their interest?
Today I wanted to share with you February’s Piano Book of the Month. Not only do I have a funky little video trailer featuring excerpts from a couple of the pieces, but below the video you can also preview some of the music!
But let’s begin with the video…
The Guardians of Arranmore
Following an ancient legend in which a small band of mysterious youth protect the island of Arranmore from a vicious viking army, this book provides celtic-flavored character themes in each of the “white key” minor keys.
Inspire your teens with the legend, engage them with the original artwork, and then challenge them to learn all of the pieces in this book. Their ability to play within key signatures they may not frequently encounter, and their willingness to play with expression will soar as they explore Saorla’s Theme, Carrick’s Theme, Taefa’s Theme… and more!
