    Twelve graded solo piano selections with optional duet parts and fun poetry.

    Now here’s a book with something for everyone. Inspired by the charm and appeal of animal personae, Bradley Sowash’s jazzy music is further enhanced by original poetry. Twelve graded (late beginner to intermediate) selections means beginners can use it throughout their early music education. More advanced students will also find pieces well suited to their level and may enjoy sight-reading lower level selections. Teachers will appreciate the optional duet parts, which add focus and clarification to lessons as well as offering opportunities for students to play together.

    Format: Self-published on plain paper with three hole punches for easy notebook insertion. 41 pages.
