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! 

Grapes Grandma ships in a printed, professionally bound folio with a full color cover.

Instrumentation

Marimba—low A
