Dennis Alexander was commissioned by the Double Sharp Music Club of Warroad, MN to write this piano solo in memory of Katie Jo Olafson. Katie was a 16-year-old sophomore at Warroad High School when she lost her life on October 2, 2000 after suffering injuries in an automobile accident. Katie loved music and couldn't walk by a piano without stopping to play it. She participated in piano competitions, playing both solos and duets, and always earned the highest marks. This early advanced solo is written at the level that Katie's friends are currently playing and is in the style that Katie liked to play. Katie's friends and family have used music to help them with the healing process. It is our hope that this solo celebrating Katie's life will bring them solace as well.

    I love the contrasting sections in this piece. The piece is for a more advanced player, but is good for teaching a more lyrical style of playing.

    Another beautiful piece by Dennis Alexander. Like to use this piece with my late intermediate/early advanced students. It has a beautiful melody. Love the key transitions, along with the dynamics and tempo changes.

    Excellent choice for piano player looking to improve his/her technique and still is fun to play. The piece has a recurring melodic structure, uses the entire range of the piano, and the composition is well presented. It has an appealing quality to it which reminds me of some of...

    the classical romantic piano pieces that I have played and listened.

    Lovely song. Wish I could find more like it. The music store in my town has a very limited selection of late intermediate/early advanced/advanced sheet music. Not having any luck on the internet either.
