Piano, Teaching works

3 pieces for beginning pianists

These short pieces were written specifically for Sunrise, an album of works for young pianists. They were first performed by Mary Barber on 30 March 2008.

About the music

The 3 pieces are called:

  • What’s the taniwha’s story
  • Sad song on a rainy day,  and
  • Pukeko.

They can be played separately or as a group.

Score and recording

All 3 pieces were published in 2008 by the Sunrise Music Trust in Sunrise — music from New Zealand for young pianists. Mary Barber recorded the pieces for a CD that accompanies the book.
