Composition

Greetings!  I know I haven’t posted anything but it is because of the usual things that happen around March and April, which is of course Palm Sunday, Holy Week, and Easter.  The other event that usually happens to me around this time is the end of a semester of teaching music theory.  This year, I decided to write a series of short piano pieces to demonstrate different binary and ternary forms.  Two of them were written in prior years, but this one was specifically written this April for an assignment.  Important: get the score here!

The assignment was to decide the form of the piece and defend your answer.  The answer is ternary because of the three distinct, independent parts = A B A (and repeats).  Like many of the free works I post, this one was fun to write and is definitely related to how I often improvise on a piano.
