Duets
Blue Tongue Lizard Boogie It has been said that at the Lilydale Lake at night Blue Tongue lizards come out to play. If you see one you need to make sure that it won't bite! This is a duet that I wrote for my piano students Anthony and Stephanie Julian. Stephanie had just started having piano lessons, so her part is just for the left hand. Page 1 (GIF)

Chopsticks Circus Many of us learn to play chopsticks before we even have piano lessons. Here is an arrangement of chopsticks that is a little bit more than a two finger piece. This is an arrangement of chopsticks that I wrote for my piano students Saya and Mina Kojima. The third variation is in a minor key where you will need to play the dotted eight note/sixteenth note values correctly. Page 1 (GIF)
