Fiddlehead Green is one of my absolute favourite duets to teach, hear and play. It is an elementary level duet (1 piano/4 hands) with a fun fiddle-like intro and a memorable melody. A spirited Irish-inspired fiddle tune with shared melody parts and a short canon make this duet a great choice for your elementary students; it's a real audience pleaser as well! Number of pages: 4. Approx. Level 2.
This duet is perfect for you if you want:
- practice with harmonic 4ths and 5ths
- reinforcement of the D Major scale
- a sweet Irish-inspired tune that makes you smile
- a fresh elementary duet that students love
- an approachable ensemble for your recitals
I wrote Fiddlehead Green in the springtime when fiddlehead ferns were popping up all over my yard. Everything was so fresh, vibrant, green and new. I wanted to incorporate a fiddle sound into the duet because I love plays on words! So if you are looking for a bright-sounding duet that's a perfect fit for almost all your elementary students, then Fiddlehead Green is for you!
