Dennis Alexander

With a haunting, touching melody, “Forest Whispers” brings out the deeper side of young pianists. The piece begins with the gentle whisperings of a flowing melodic line. Alexander uses touching harmonies to create a special mood. The accompaniment should complement, but not overpower, the melody. Students should be sure to use consistent fingerings in all of the left hand figurations. A legato touch and shaping in the right hand keep the piece moving forward. With the addition of contrasting material in the middle section, this is a fantastic piece for improving technical and musical skills.
