Andantino

Back to showcasing the duets in my books. Here is Andantino, the third duet in Delightfully Easy Piano Duets: Book 1. It’s a good one for practice at reading the bass clef. It starts off with both players just playing with their left hands, then  you get a swell of volume and texture as the right hands are added.

The beginner’s melody is slow over the Diabelli bass figure of the intermediate part. If a beginner needs encouragement with feeling the rhythm here, I often play their part with them to begin with, in my free right hand.

The question and answer phrases exchanged by beginner and Intermediate near the end of the piece are fun and encourage each part to listen to each other.
