An evocative piano solo for early intermediate piano - Approx. 2nd Grade Level AMEB/ANZCA
This piece was written for teens, although it equally will resonate with adults and with many pre-teens.
The journey through adolescence can be a dark and lonely experience and there is often a tendency for young people to immerse themselves in melancholia. As always in writing for teens, my aim has been to create a balance between allowing the young person to live fully into their emotional life while also giving them a window of light, hope and joy to aspire to so that both the emotional and spiritual needs of adolescence are being met. As such, the music is deeply evocative but any darkness is tempered with light so that the psyche is protected, nourished and enriched.
