For my next trick…

As well as having music theory lessons for sale on the internet, we now have some sheet music for sale from my shop!

“The Old Sea Dog” – a piece I wrote (for my boyfriend at the time) when I was about 18, incorporates lots of sea-shanty type melodies with original material.

It was published in 1996 in “Bass is Best!” book 2 without my permission and without my knowledge. For the last few years it has been on the Associated Board syllabus for Grade 3, presumably helping sales of the book along nicely but I haven’t ever had a penny from the publishers.

So now you can buy it direct from my shop instead for a fraction of the price – legally!

Also available is an arrangement of Albinoni’s Adagio for piano solo. This was arranged for one of my pupils, who, although he would have difficulty coping with the simplest of pieces, given something which captured his interest, would gobble it up in a couple of lessons. He learned Beethoven Moonlight Sonata first movement from memory, yet would have had difficulty passing Grade 1! This was the next piece I gave him after the Beethoven.
