Piano and Keyboard


This collection features songs that originated from the slave population of North America in the 19th Century. Beset by trouble, sickness and backbreaking labor, these songs bear witness to the slave longing for heaven, where they might find freedom and comfort. As a musical form, the Spiritual stands as a classic expression of religious emotion. Includes: Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, Go Down Moses, and more.

Students just beginning to learn an instrument naturally want to advance quickly beyond simple melodies to something more 'popular', but beginning techniques are not enough to allow them to enjoy this type of music as much as they would when singing it. This set of pieces is meant to help bridge that gap, step by step. The pieces gradually progress from very easy to medium advanced, constantly teaching something new. Articulation, phrasing, rhythm, and harmony are all addressed, with special attention paid to the characteristics of pop music. Originally written for violin and piano, this edition includes the piano part with the solo melody written above for reference. Instrumental parts for violin, flute, viola, and cello are available separately. These parts can be used separately or together in unison. In English and German.

First ever publication of Alban Berg's Piano Sonata op. 1 here transcribed for guitar duo. Prepared from Alban Berg's later revised version of this work by Gangolf Hontheim.

America is clearly a land of song! In this fine collection, prolific Mel Bay author Jerry Silverman explores the dusty archives of songdom to rediscover golden treasures of bygone days. The book offers over 50 captivating American songs loosely classified as related to Home, Home Runs, and Heartbreak. All selections are arranged for piano and voice with complete lyrics and suggested guitar chords. Includes a historical essay by Russell Baker plus an introduction and commentary on many of the individual songs by the author.

Private studio teachers, school string programs and Suzuki teachers preparing for recitals will welcome these tasteful piano accompaniments for the violin, viola and cello editions of Volume 2 of Brian Wicklund's American Fiddle Method. Acknowledged as the most widely used fiddle method in the country, Wicklund became aware of the increasing demand for a parallel piano accompaniment series and engaged his friend Bob Walser to take on the task of writing it.

Collaborating closely with Wicklund, Walser was encouraged to adhere to the chord progressions suggested in the original books, but given leeway to add interesting variations in rhythm and harmony. The result is a book of arrangements that welcomes pianists to the jamming circle. Piano playing teachers, parents and siblings can now join in the fun, and fiddle tunes can be featured in concerts and recitals with the support of an accompanist. In addition, principals of accompaniment learned by playing these arrangements can be applied to accompanying other tunes, the voice or other instruments.

The American Fiddle Method itself provides the beginner with the elements needed to become a proficient fiddler. Based on many years of teaching experience, the author introduces concepts and techniques that yield solid results. This method encourages creativity in the student by including variations of the tunes to illustrate how they can serve as a basis for improvisation.

A fascinating collection of fifty historic American love songsand ballads. The songs are arranged in piano/vocal format with guitar chords shown and range from sentimental Southern Mountain ballads to jazzy Tin Pan Alley numbers.
