Variations in F

 

 

MediumtoTricky

 

This is a lovely melodic set of variations based on a deceptively simple theme.  If played with repeats for each variation, as is often done when performing music from the baroque and classical eras, it is an excellent recital piece.   The first simple variations gradually segue into increasingly difficult ones, with the last one requiring some dexterity.  But students of every level can enjoy this piece by simply choosing which variations they can play comfortably and remembering to finish off with a repeat of the theme.   That’s fair.

This set of variations is an excellent “companion” to Variations on a Simple Theme,  also posted here on this site.  For teacher with two “rival” students of approximately the same level, each can be assigned one of these pieces and the competition will be under way.

Enjoy.

    Ms. Nikki Ty-Tomkins has done a very Mozart-like tune, a wonderfully composed in the style of classical forebears. Deceptively described as “Simple” and “Easy,” the tune turns the theme into a gradually more complex and intricate series of fingerings, depending on the progress of the
    pianist. One can keep to the original measures, but as he/she gets the hang of the song, it is possible to graduate to the neoclassical versions. I believe Ty-Tomkins will eventually become one of the “greats” of her time, wait and see!
