Imagine the fun of learning traditional sonata-allegro form through pieces about a Wooly Worm, a Dinosaur, an Apple Tree, and a Leprechaun! John Robert Poe has carefully labeled the exposition, recapitulation, development and various themes, all of which have been created in his wonderfully workable musical style.

  • October 01, 2010 Nice collection for young beginners

    This is a nice collection of sonatinas for young students. The pieces are simple rhythmically and each stick more or less to one hand position. They are not particularly inspired (for example, the Wooly Worm rambles a bit, which makes it difficult to memorize for young ones), but my students...

    have especially enjoyed the Dinosaur one and I'm sure I will assign these again.
