Description

Grooves for Two is a collection of seven groovy pieces for piano four-hands, written by leading pianist-composers working in jazz and other popular styles. Designed for teacher-pupil duos, the pieces provide foot-tapping fun while exploring rhythmic styles often reserved for bands, encouraging good ensemble playing and a strong sense of beat. To heighten the creativity, the collection includes optional improvisation sections, and a CD of demo performances and practice backing-tracks. This is piano-duet playing at its coolest...
