Notes from the composer
The Andalusian has glissandos, PDLT and lots of triads in various forms. The Arabian is an easy one with a few triplets. Riding Sunflower is a cheerful waltz teaching scales, inversions, and arpeggios. The Horse In My Dreams is a gentle piece in 3/4 teaching expressive right hand and left hand rolled chords. Irish Pony is a spirited 4/4 piece with lots of drones played in different octaves as eighths and quarters. Old Paint has that very western trail riding theme kids will love. The Silver Unicorn is a stately 6/8 piece which teaches inversions and dotted 8ths and 16ths. This one would make a great recital piece. Prancing Pony Rag is a lighthearted jovial piece with a lively feel that doesn’t need to be played quickly. Excellent teaching pieces.
