With these nine intermediate- to late-intermediate-level solos, students can travel around the world with popular composer Martha Mier. This book is a musical tour guide to sites in Russia, Argentina, Ireland, Spain, Hungary, Samoa, and the United States. A highlight of the book is a three-movement Jazzy American Suite.
"Ms. Mier consistently provides students and teachers with interesting music that is fun to play, interesting to listen to, and helps develop musicality."
"These stylish pieces help bridge the gap between method book pieces and classical literature."
