This piece, written in the key of A Minor, has a lot more accidentals than the G# normally found in this key. It makes for an unusual sound for an equally unusual subject.
The tune for this piece is taken from an African-American spiritual. It begins and ends in the key of A major, moving into C major as it develops, then gracefully back to A major to end.
This is a rhythmic piece set in a Mixolydian mode. The first part starts with the mode on "G" then moves it to a "D" for an expressive middle section. It does a Da Capo back to the mode on "G", ending with a coda on a G7 chord with a suspended 4th. It's a musical adventure with a safari theme!

This familiar waltz has been arranged in the key of G Major for the intermediate student.
This is a simplified arrangement of Robert Schumann's first piece from "Scenes from Childhood" Opus 15. It is written in the key of C Major, in 3/4 time (the original key signature was G Major, with a 2/4 time signature that used triplets).
Written in the key of G minor, this melancholy piece makes use of a recurring right hand melody as the left hand changes beneath it. Good seasonal piece for older students to play.
