Echoes of Yesterday by Randall Hartsell. For Piano. Piano Solo; Solo. Early Intermediate level piece for the Piano Solo event with the National Federation of Music Clubs (NFMC) Festivals Bulletin 2008-2009-2010. SMP Level 3 (Early Intermediate); NFMC Level: Elementary Class 3. Sheet. 4 pages. Published by Alfred Music Publishing (AP.21402).
The flowing, romantic style of this piece will appeal to junior high and high school students. Ease in learning is facilitated through the use of many patterns, both rhythmic and melodic. A variety of five-finger patterns are used and repeated in different octaves, all while holding down the damper pedal to allow time to move easily over the keyboard. The dynamics clearly mark the shape of the phrases, and careful attention to them will result in an interesting and musical performance.

A graceful melody
I played this at my piano competiton, level 5, it was challenging to learn as it had lots of pedal and dynamics. I am in the 5th grade and been having lessons since 2nd. I did score a superior :o)
