If there is one thing I love it’s color! My studio is full of color, and I can’t think of a more exciting collection of pieces than this one Rebekah Maxner (composer of the fabulous Old MacDonald Had the Blues piano book) has put together devoted just to color! Let me introduce you to…The Color Collection!
With titles like Orange Juice, Green Shade, Gray Day, Rainbow Swirl, and more, these intermediate level pieces are sure to grab the imagination of lots of piano students. And, what’s really cool is that Rebekah has recorded herself playing each of the pieces in the collection so that students can watch and listen to an incredibly musical performance. How inspiring to get to hear a composer perform her own works! Visit Rebekah’s Notekidds YouTube channel to see the entire collection (btw, notice how her shirt matches whatever piece she is playing! :-)).
This Green Shade piece is probably my favorite so far.
Now, for the best part…Rebekah has offered to giveaway a copy of The Color Collection to one special Music Matters Blog Reader! Just leave a comment below to be entered in the drawing to win your own copy of the colorful book. The winner will be drawn using a random number generator on Thursday, May 19, at noon (CST).
