Snapchats by Melanie Spanswick


Snapchats is a collection of original duets and trios intended for students from late beginner standard to approximately Grade 4 (ABRSM level). There are 19 duets (four hands at one keyboard) and 4 trios (6 hands at one keyboard) in this volume, and they are short, succinct pieces for those who want to explore the art of ensemble or simply improve sight-reading skills. Broadly minimalist in style, these pieces are between 8 and 16 bars in length and they offer a wide selection of moods from expressive atmospheric works such as Sutra, Andante, Shanti Shanti and Joyful, to up-beat numbers like Quick Chat, Hopscotch, Samsara and Take Three. Whether you choose to play Snapchats for fun with friends or perform them in a more formal setting at a music festival or recital, I hope they offer a special and enjoyable experience.
