Seven pieces, appropriate either individually or as a complete suite, for the range of the intermediate pianist. each piece contains a key element of the pianistic art, including 7/8 rhythm, legato melody in the left hand, dissonance with varying dynamics, a "cross-hands" piece that sounds harder than it is, a pentatonic piece using una corda, a fun chromatic scare, and sweeping music like a film score. Commission and premiere for the South Dakota Music Teachers Association by the composer, Sioux Falls, SD, 2015
