Evocative piano solo for Early Intermediate (2nd, 3rd year piano).

One of my favorite moments as a piano teacher was discovering "Night Train" by Chris Goldston in that great collection of Alfred's called "Contest Winners", in this case Vol. 2.

I'll never forget turning to the second page of this moody A minor piece and finding the Bb Lydian, D minor, and E Phrygian passages. That piece is magic, and most of my students would confirm that. The A minor return has a sublime little twist, which was one of the inspirations for indicating hand positions larger than just 5 steps by means of a "V". And, of course the final chord is probably the first time the student has ever heard, much less played, the sound of stacked 4ths (because they're probably not yet listening to Coltrane and McCoy Tyner).

VV's (two v's) indicates two skipped keys between fingers 1 and 2--just how to play that chord correctly.

So.... if you like that piece, then I hope you'll like "Night Shadows", which will give you and your students more opportunity to explore and enjoy those great harmonies.
