With Halloween fast approaching, we’re all getting into the spirit around here at Amro Music! We have some great decorations and loads of Halloween candy! One of our favorite parts of the store during October is our print music department.
Right now, we have a display of Halloween music that’s sure to sound spook-tacular! Here’s a breakdown of some of our favorite selections for this magical time of year.
The Mummy by Tom Gerou
Book: Piece by Piece, Book B
These original piano solos offer students at the elementary level the opportunity to explore a variety of styles, techniques, and moods. The pieces require some hands-together playing and harmonic intervals. Challenges include reading accidentals and playing melodies that have intervals from 2nds through 5ths.
Black Widow’s Wedding by Tom Gerou
Book: Piece by Piece, Book C
Level: Late Elementary
These original piano solos offer students at the late elementary level the opportunity to explore a variety of styles, techniques, and moods. The pieces in this collection use the various registers of the piano and require some hands-together playing. Challenges include reading in the keys of G major and F major, playing melodic and harmonic intervals of a 6th, simple pedaling, and more frequent hand shifts.
Graceful Ghost Rag
Edward B. Marks
Concert Band - Grade 4
Adapted from the well-known piano composition "Graceful Ghost Rag," here is William Bolcom's own very elegant and effective version for symphonic band. Written in a moderate ragtime tempo, this work utilizes a transparent scoring style along with soloistic passages contrasted with brief soli features for various sections of the ensemble. This piece is both unique and rewarding.
Discovery Plus Concert Band - Grade 2
Halloween is always one the highlights of the fall season. Why not add a little drama and excitment to your fall concert with some classic scary themes? Featuring Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, Funeral March of the Marionette, Theme from Jaws, Addams Family Theme, Night on Bald Mountain and Thriller, this may very well become the hit of the concert!
Overture to the Addams Family Musical
Young Concert Band - Grade 3
From the instantly recognized TV theme by Vic Mizzy to the clever and catchy new songs by Andrew Lippa, the new musical production brings all the creepy and kooky (and even “ooky”) fun to the Broadway stage. This entertaining medley includes The Addams Family Theme, When You're an Addams, and Move Toward the Darkness.
