Obviously the friendly little reptile only feels truly fit amidst original literature, and you'll be amazed to see how many gently flowing or wildly cascading pieces have been produced over the past two centuries. You'll find pieces by masters such as Czerny, Schumann, Gurlitt and Theodor Kirchner; some white-water pieces from William Gillock and Mike Schoenmehl; and with the "Little Atlantic Rhapsody," an ocean breeze will sweep through every piano lesson. No one has to be afraid of water, however, since "Splash" is also ideal for non-swimmers! The pieces are generally a bit more demanding than those in the "Horses" book, but this definitely need not dampen anyone's enthusiasm. With this book, learning the piano goes swimmingly!

Surging, flowing, dripping…, roiling, rippling, gurgling…, oceans, lakes, rivers…, rain, ice and snow:
Water in its countless forms is a fundamental element of our life.
Water is an extremely fertile topic in piano literature as well. It has inspired many composers to create appealing, imaginative and expressive pieces which are particularly well suited to the instrument.
We hope you will enjoy your voyage of discovery!
