By the Sea
My students love this as a "show off" piece. They learn useful skills and sensitivity and it sounds harder than it is. It's also easy to memorize.

By the Sea
This is a beautiful composition. It isn't very difficult to play. Just playing this piece is very relaxing. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys playing "runs".

Pedaling the key to interpretation
For a musician learning the fine art of pedaling, this piece is both challenging and rewarding. Long after the piece fades from repertoire, the delicate skill, if learned, remains. Under the tutelage of Juliet Shaw, (1980's) in CT, I watched my son Jim become sensitized to the importance of interpretative pedaling. This piece was one that required discipline and "hearing" to execute. Beautiful melody but more than that if you can really teach more than notes and dynamics.

I have searched for this composition for years. Not knowing the composer's name made this difficult. My mother played this piece years ago and you have no idea how pleased I was to finally find it.
