One of my students, years ago, wanted to know if I could make a robust version of SIMPLE GIFTS for piano solo. Copland had done such a wonderful job with that tune in Appalachian Spring. So I tried several treatments and came up with these 3 variations which seemed to work. They were somewhat cinematic in style.

  • July 31, 2016 Simple Gifts - Theme and 3 variations

    I am by no means a professional piano player. I took lessons as a kid and only play at home for fun. I was looking for an arrangement of Simple Gifts that would be relatively easy for me to pick up yet still sound beautiful. This was exactly what I...

    was looking for. It's a pretty arrangement. Starts in b flat and ends in f sharp. Just the right level of challenging for me and I'm sure I'll get it down perfect with a little practice. It would even sound pretty in church or at a special event. I would consider it early intermediate to intermediate level. Definitely recommend.
