If there was ever a perfect “project book” that your students can really take ownership over, then this month’s piano book is it… (okay, our upcoming teen book is crazy awesome too!!)
As well as being quite possibly the most unique book we’ve created to date, The Mutterwump Masterpiece: An Intergalactic Exploration of Theme and Variations is the type of piano book you don’t have to assign for homework… kids are just drawn to it.
To learn more about The Mutterwump Masterpiece check out the video preview below and then keep reading to see the music. (Note: don’t forget to turn up the volume)
The Mutterwump Masterpiece
There once was a composer…
Ever wonder what would happen if your music fell into the hands of a Sharglequark… or a Mutterwump… or an Aquagaga?
Your students will delight in the changes that a host of wild and wacky space creatures choose to make to “a very normal piece” as it floats from planet to planet.
Complete with a catchy poem and original artwork, this imaginative book of piano repertoire will give your students the opportunity to explore the concept of theme and variations and to observe how changes to articulation, voicing, dynamics, key, arrangement and rhythm can affect the character of a piece.
Will the poor composer ever produce a song of which he can be proud? Read on to find out!
