Gustav the Goldfinch

Piano pieces for children with story and pictures.

This is a collection of nine piano pieces. It is to be printed as a piano book, but with pictures and a storyline, aimed at 6 to 11 year olds. The story is the journey of Gustav, a goldfinch, who is searching for his lost song. The piano pieces are varied, but all use modal harmonies.  I’d suggest they are for piano players of grade 1 and 2 level. The book aims to make playing the piano a fun experience for young people, but this video can be enjoyed by people of all ages!!
