Review of Irish Celebration

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and if you enjoy hearing holiday-themed music in your studio you’ll want to grab a copy of Wendy Stevens’ latest sheet music: Irish Celebration. The melody is fun and catchy – one that any early elementary student will love learning and playing over and over…and over and over. 🙂

Set in a simple 5-finger position, Irish Celebration is very accessible while still managing to sound great sans duet. The accompanying duet, however, would be perfect for an older sibling or other early intermediate student. It adds a great sense of energy and excitement without detracting from the melody. Lots of fun!

Other favorite Irish Music selections in my studio include:

From the Emerald Isle by Melody Bober
Highland Jig by Mary Leaf (one of the selections in this In Recital book)

I’d love to have some other suggestions of favorite Irish repertoire. What pieces do your students really like playing?

Share and enjoy!
