This album is a follow-up of the more easy concept started in album 4, for pupils who take lessons for about two years.
(Illustrations by Michiel Vlam). The music of this album is on CD 2.

Jumping flea


Let the pupil catch the rhythm by beating the time on the closed piano-lid. By doing so he doesn't have to think about notes and fingering etc. and the rhythm is, so to speak, more or less printed in both hands.

Lady bee sings the blues

Same story about "beat" etc. in this piece as well.

-

Bumble-bee's lullaby

 

It is not an easy task for a less experienced player to achieve uniformity in both hands. For practice it helps when you play the left-hand f and the right-hand pp, while trying to listen to the left-hand.

-

Caterpillars


When you imagine how that little creature moves on you'll be able to play it just right.

The spider and the little night-moth

 mp3 656 Kb

And it doesn't turn out to well for the little night-moth..
The story starts with a glissando along the black keys (the spider) and because such an action can be painful you could do that with an old tennis-ball. A great success on a performance! The structure, though looking rather complicated, is in fact very simple and with some help of the teacher the job will be done quicker than you would expect.

Bumping beetles

They clash as hard as a stone, but in the middle-section they seem to make piece.

-

-

Waltzing mosquitoes

 

If one could only keep down those insects by playing this waltz. There is a priggish one in the left-hand in the third line.

-

Marching ants

 mp3 713 Kb complete

A jolly march with pop-elements and an ordinary scale in G major and at the end two little ants left behind.

-

A dragon-fly in Paris

 mp3 736 Kb complete

Flying along the Eiffel-tower, spotting terraces with people drinking a glass of wine and the sound of a far-away accordion.

-

-

Lady-bird in distress

 mp3 840 Kb complete

A sad and tender little story.

-

Cricket's theme

 

This cricket plays with its little right-paw across its left-one while hopping around.
