    As a piano instructor, I have noticed that there is a lack of four-hand pieces where the primo part is significantly easier than the secondo. To remedy this, I have been writing some pieces for my students where the primo part does not extend beyond a fixed five-finger pattern. I have had success with this in my teaching and now I am looking to share my music with other pianists too. I would like to be able to sell some of my compositions eventually, but for now, I simply want to get them out so that they can be played.

    My goal with these duets is to write some music that is simple and fun to play. I consider it a nice departure from the boring “kiddie” books that we have all been subjected to. I would appreciate any feedback or constructive criticism that you might have regarding these pieces. Let me know what you think!
