Is It Halloween, Already????? 30 September, 2015
recommended by Barb M., Keyboard and Folk Music Specialist
No, it isn’t Halloween, already. It’s just that we musicians need to start practicing before a holiday occurs, so we have to start earlier than everyone else. For music teachers, it’s time to start students on their Halloween recital pieces. Stanton’s has Halloween piano pieces at every level, from primer to advanced. Many pieces are available as single title sheets, while some are found in collections. Keep in mind that many advanced classical pieces for piano that we traditionally associate with Halloween can be played throughout the year, including “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” by Dukas, used in Disney’s”Fantasia,” and “Funeral March of a Marionette” by Charles Gounod.
