Colourful Critters is designed for the clever piano student who would benefit from playing pieces that continue to build upon technique and rhythmic concepts. Each piece has a featured rhythm, which happens to match the rhythm of the title. You’ve never seen an indigo buffalo? That’s okay, a silly title is simply more fun and is a great way to connect with rhythm.
The "Before You Begin" suggestions are warm-ups that help prepare the fingers for each piece. And don’t forget to try the creative activities. These challenges include all kinds of variations that change the music in a really fun way. Who wouldn’t want to turn the “Pink Pig” into the “Pink Ghost”? I hope you have fun playing these colourful studies with a creative twist!
Colourful Critters is a fantastic collection to use with early teens who have moved away from method books, but still have important skills to develop.
