<i>Notes on the composition:</i>

The word “benediction” means “blessing,” and as such, this piece should be played in a gentle, yet joyful manner.
Careful attention to melodic shaping will bring out the maximum expressive effect.
Skills employed in this piece:
*Reading E#, B#, and double sharps
*Polyphony within one hand
*Cantabile playing
*Clef switching

<i>Notes on the collection:</i>

VENTURING BEYOND features twenty late beginner to early intermediate-level piano solos, representing all key signatures with three or more sharps/flats (including enharmonics)--keys rarely seen in today's pedagogical piano literature for the early grades. These pieces, written in Baroque, Classical and Romantic styles, not only help acquaint students with the idea of reading "within keys," but they also introduce common musical genres of the Western Classical canon (including the scherzo, sarabande, minuet, and fugue). These short, expressive compositions--each no more than two pages in a medium-sized font and requiring no more than a major sixth reach--are also ideal for adult students who desire to play musically satisfying repertoire that is within their technical grasp, but still suitable for public and private performance.
This volume also refrains from invoking programmatic titles or content that might suggest that it is geared toward the school-age student; thus, it is ideal for student pianists of all ages, from 5 to 105! This volume is pre-formatted to print double-sided, so that each of the two-page pieces will lie on facing pages when bound and no page turns will be required."
