After giving me carte blanche in the first three books the publisher came with the request for a more simple level, for pupils who take lessons for about two years.
The music of album 4 is on CD 2.

Ah, Maman

In fact the first 3 pieces Ah, maman, Ah,papa and Running away belong together and also Mozart's variations "Ah, vous dirai je, Maman" could be recognized in a way.

Easter-time

 mp3 759 Kb complete

A simple Bach-like little piece; pedaling needed.

-

A stroll

 mp3 633 Kb complete

Keep your right hand in the same position while moving. Easy, isn't it? Play it a bit jazzier by using the notation above the piece.

-

-

Feeling blue

 

In spite of the three dangerous looking flats easy to play because of its clear structure.

-

-

Lullaby

 

Sweet, don't forget the pedal.

John William's walking blues

 mp3 679 Kb complete

See also "Anybody home?" in Book 2. And indeed, it was quite a distance to walk for little "Jan Willem" (and I still feel sorry for him).

-

-

Dreaming

 

Because of a same combination of notes you can keep your hands in the same position and don't forget to put your left hand across the right hand.

-

-

Moonstruck

 

In fact nothing else than a handful of broken triads.

-

-

Good morning, Paris

 

Close your eyes and you 'll smell fresh baked croissants and hear an accordionist playing along the Seine.

-

-

Looking back

 

The Melody is in the left hand and there is some putting across hands in the last 2 lines.

-

-

Got you!

 

A firm beginning and syncope's in the left hand. Try to catch the beat by nodding your head on the second count.

Puppets on a string

It's important to play the notation above, for, if you don't it 'll sound a bit dull.

-

-

Undercurrent

 

The middle-section is not that easy but your efforts will be rewarded at the end, which is triumphant.
