Childhood Excursions: Are We There Yet?!

Amy Stephens

Categories:

Level:

When Amy was a child growing up in Detroit, Canada was just 30 minutes away! In this suite, Amy takes the performer through her most-treasured childhood memories in Ontario, exploring places like the Algoma Railway to Sault Ste Marie, performances at Stratford, the waterfalls at Niagra-on-the Lake, the monarchs at Point Pelee, and harvest time in Chatham. The suite teaches arm and wrist fluidity, with each piece focusing on a different aspect of using elbow and wrist movements at the piano: drop-lift slurs, wrist rotation, wrist circles, side-to-side and in-and-out motions. Amy combines classical form with jazz language and sensibilities in these very fun pieces.
