Sound Sketches is an innovative series of graded piano pieces that will appeal to pianists of all ages and abilities. These pieces are varied in character, and each one opens up an imaginative world of colours and textures for players to explore. These ‘sound images’ are evoked through strong melodic ideas which hide their technical challenges within a sense of the delight that can be had from conjuring music from the keyboard.
The idea behind the Sound Sketches series was to create pieces that capture images and ideas and present them musically, in a way that is very accessible and easy to grasp right from the start. Each piece has its own individual character, atmosphere and sound world. And each volume gives players the opportunity to engage with the full expressive range of the piano. The music will appeal to children, but it is also ideal for adult pupils.
“I find it hard to over-praise this accessible and vibrantly conceived selection. What is special here is that Lynch succeeds triumphantly in realising his noble ambition of writing relatively easy music that has substance…”
Murray McLachlan, International Piano Magazine
“…many beautiful and unusual melodies…will surely appeal to any intermediate student”
