Composed by Tony Matthews. Modern, Neo-Classical, Asian, New Year's, Children's Music. Individual Part, Piano Reduction, Score. 28 pages. Published by Archway Melodies (S0.185421).

Item Number: S0.185421

An original suite of four songs for young children to celebrate aspects of the Chinese New Year. A pentatonic scale is used to give the songs an oriental feel, however the songs are not slaves to that scale.

Each song can be used as a stand-alone piece or performed together as a cohesive unit. It is very possible to create you own actions around this music.

The four songs are:

1. Come, Know the Flowers.
2. Fire Crackers.
3. Lanterns.
4. The Dragon.

The PREVIEW file is the first 30 seconds or so of each song. 


Included in the download are:

* The Piano and Vocal Score
* A Melody line part
* Lyric sheets in full colour (or color)

*Guitar chords are available on request.


Additional Notes

The piano part is not difficult to play, despite the (scary?) six flat key signature. The notes should just fall under the fingers, especially in Fire Crackers, which sounds more difficult than it actually is.

This is just one of many works I’ve written for children and adults alike. If you would like something written for you, then I am always also open to composing with any ideas that you have.
