A little piece of Scottish folk mucked about with. The computer version is awful sorry.
Originally written for guitar, but is next to impossible. Here is a piano version. It is variations in a pentatonic style on a well known annoying tune that all children seem to be able to play.
Written for my friend Andy sherrif in the Masonic pub. It is a drinking tale. It is in the form of a Scottish Waltz, with a harp section in the centre.
There are over 90 Small Pieces so I have had to split them into further pages put below:
A theme that got me wondering what a spiral would sound like in music. Hopefully this comes across on the score. It is a sort of 12 bar blues variations.
This is the original of the brass arrangement. A ground in 7 4 in a quiet but triumphant mood.
A repeating post minimilist piece. Sounds much better played live though, as do all of these pieces.
Like the beating of the heart this piece. I have also done versions for the guitar and Harp.
An idea for a series of pieces on simple ideas. That I might continue in the future. Quit modern.
A pattern arch piece that I wrote in Tooting as it says, that again is about using not much material and seeing what I could do with it.
These are the piano starters for the Twinkling variations for strings, which I wrote as a means of teaching the string concepts in standard grade music and some fun for the string group.
A huge set of variations on one of my tunes. I was playing a lot of the Mozart variations on the piano at this point.
This is a set of variations on (as you can see) Small Piece 7, available on a previous page. It is quite challenging. I am happy with this piece, this audio off the computer does not do it justice and is only a very rough guide.
Here are some of my compositions, sorted out into Instruments and groups of Instruments. Click on any image below to go to the corresponding page.
