Daffodils Peeking From the Snow is a sweet, gentle piece for your beginner teen and adult piano students that sounds harder than it is.  Easy to teach by rote!

Daffodils Peeking From the Snow Level:

“Daffodils Peeking From the Snow” is an early elementary (rote) through to elementary (reading) piano solo.  This piece is designed with beginner teen and adult students that would like an approachable, but more advanced sounding piano solo for your studio recital!

  • Mode: C Major
  • Time Signature: 3/4
  • Concepts: Echo dynamics (mp-p), enclosed repeat signs, 8va, cross left-hand over right-hand

This piece is in  3/4 time and uses the three most common beginner rhythm patterns.  The smallest note is a quarter note.

Starting finger numbers are included with some fingering written in to guide students with the first chords.  However, other finger numbers are left out so students can determine what feels best under their fingertips.  This is especially important for your students that may find conventional finger numbers too constricting.

Based on broken chord patterns over two hands, your students will explore root position and chord inversions.  There is an alpha note (note name written in the note-head) for the last note as this is the only ledger line note in the entire piece.

Holding the pedal the entire song combined with the echo dynamics for each repeat creates a sweet, shy and endearing soundscape!

Daffodils Peeking From the Snow Bonus:

All sheet music comes with original cover art.  “Daffodils Peeking From the Snow” comes with “make it your own” suggestions for students to experiment with developing their own voice.
