Light, graceful and lyrical playing can be reinforced with this delightful solo by June Montgomery. The A section features a left-hand descending waltz bass line with a sequential right-hand melodic line reminiscent of butterflies fluttering in the garden. The B section offers a nice contrast with a slightly faster tempo and change of key from F major to A minor. The A section returns in the key of C making this piece a good study of major and relative minor keys.

  • October 24, 2011 Not The Twilight Butterfly Waltz

    A nice simple song but not the Butterfly Waltz I was hoping for. The bridal processional Butterfly Waltz is by Brian Crain and can be found on his website. Still worth the purchase.

    I thought I was buying the same title by another composer so it wasn't what my student wanted. But this piece is very nice too so I'll use it with another student.

    I immediately enjoyed playing Butterfly Waltz as I sightread it before assigning it to a student. When played at a bright tempo, it is very satisfying to hear, and gives the impression that it's more difficult than it really is. Easily fits into the fingers, and is a "do...

    -able" piece for the solidly intermediate student.

  • December 05, 2006 A Great Piece!

    This piece is a hit. It's easy enough to many people to play, but it really sounds like something! It's got an ABA form with a nice running line that develops in the A sections, and a separate line in the B. It's hard to find pieces...

    this satisfying at this grade level. Great for recitals! The only caveat: The left hand accompaniment in the B section is a bit clunky at times, and cumbersome for some folks to perform.
