This song is written to be played with either the right or the left hand, alone. Developing strength and independence of each hand is a worthy goal for every pianist. "Blue Mood" will assist the early intermediate level student with the development of either hand using a legato, "wistful," blues style. Fingering is provided for both hands, and pedaling and articulation markings provide a good map for interpretation. A Federation Festivals 2016-2020 selection.
