Who doesn't LOVE this song?   Originally posted on my Facebook page, I am happy to share my piano solo arrangement of a beautiful  standard, loved worldwide.   

The arrangement is sophisticated and elegant with clean, beautiful chord progressions.  And the modulation is almost effortless, adding to the beauty.   As a wonderful addition to your repertoire, there is plenty of space for enhancing dynamics and making it your own, stylistically.  

Winner of the 2017 Sacred Music Contest.

Please listen until the end for a hint of another universally recognized song!

    This is such a feel-good piece anyway, a Glenda's lovely touch just makes this arrangement one my most favorite renditions ever!

    This is a rich arrangement of a well known tune. My students just love the jazz influenced harmonics and the triplet against duplet feature makes it a perfect Grade 9 RCM 'teacher's choice' substitution. A great piece to inspire both teacher and students!

    This is a really beautiful arrangement. Thank you so much. It's very expressively written and, as it says in the description, leaves the pianist with a lot of room to add their own expression and interpretation. I love the ending. This piece sounds fairly advanced on listening, but actually...

    I think it's surprisingly straight forward to play once you sit down with it.

    I have never heard an arrangement of What A Wonderful World that touches me like this one does. Glenda Austin has woven her charming writing style into this piece and made it her own. This piece is a joy to play and very full and lush. A surefire winner!
