Iowa Hawkeyes

This single movemnt sonatina by the lesser known composer Jakob Schmitt will be one of the shorter and simpler sonatinas a student will encounter. Thus it is a great piece with which to invite your students into the world of sonatinas. The lively character of this sonatina should be handled by choosing a wise tempo (not too fast!) and by paying close attention to the slurs and articulation markings.

If anyone can find a portrait of Jakob (Jacob) Schmiit, please let us know!
