Solace Dance-Grade 4

Duration: approx. 4 minutes

This piece uses many different key areas and will give students experience switching between various key signatures. The musical themes are fairly repetitive and allow for students to concentrate on these changing keys. Articulation is also crucial in the main thematic material. These accents and staccatos serve a stylistic purpose. The music should have a light and energetic dance-like feeling to it. It may take some time for students to feel comfortable with their own part and how the counterpoint fits together.
