Recital Suite Series
Explore the sights and sounds of Arkansas through movements written in four different styles in this suite. Students will travel to majestic Sugarloaf Mountain, experience a little ragtime in Little Rock, float gently down the Red River and celebrate at a Maumelle hoedown. Ranging from flowing, romantic melodies to energetic ragtime, the music teaches rhythmic control and precision, and allows for tasteful rubato and pedaling. Intermediate.
