Description

Michael Charles Smith wrote and dedicated Grapes Grandma to Shirley B. Smith, his grandmother, who was a source of inspiration and support throughout his life. 

True to Smith’s style, this piece requires even single alternating strokes for the perpetual triplets in the left hand. A strong sense of balance is also required so the beautiful melody in the right hand is clearly emphasized. This piece is a must for anyone looking to develop their sense of melody and accompaniment without playing repetitious exercises!

As the title suggests, it's built on a repeating pattern introduced in the left hand. This pattern places accents on a cycle of beats which will make this an outstanding technical etude as well as recital piece.
