By Robert D. Vandall
Robert D. Vandall's newest solo will wow audiences at the same time as giving your arm quite a workout! Journey is a piece for the right hand alone, sending just five of your ten fingers on an expedition across the span of the keyboard! Beginning in C major and 4/4 meter, the piece travels through several tempo, key, and meter changes. Alternating between grand chords, and quick runs, students will be challenged to maintain momentum and grandeur between mighty leaps in range. Pedaling is an essential element to this voyage as it will help make the performance sound as though students have full use of both hands. This solo truly shows that it is not the destination, but the journey that makes all the difference.
