“Time Of Renewal” is a peaceful, atonal piece that explores the dichotomy between 3 and 4. Your students will play 4th intervals for the melody while hearing the ‘3’ in a triple meter. This song is a wonderful option for “May The Fourth Be With You”!
Time Of Renewal Level:
“Time Of Renewal” is a duel level piano solo. When taught by rote (early elementary level), students focus on keyboard geography, crossing hand over hand and playing with a backing track or teacher. When taught through note reading (early intermediate), students also explore the feel of triplets in 3/4 time while also exploring greater keyboard movement using just one hand. The pedal is held throughout this piece for both levels to create a dreamlike mood.
- Mode: Atonal
- Time Signature: 3/4
- Early Elementary Concepts: keyboard geography, 4th intervals, crossing hand over hand
- Early Intermediate Concepts: triplets, 2 ledger lines, extensions
NOTE: The early intermediate version works well as a teacher copy of the duet.
Time Of Renewal Bonus:
All sheet music comes with original cover art. Each level of “Time Of Renewal” also comes with “make it your own” suggestions for students to experiment with developing their own voice.

Yes! Each page is designed with students in mind.
- Page 1: Cover art
- Page 3+: Music
- Last page: Other music they may like
Students love a bit of cover art since it can help them get into the mood and story of a piece. I’ve included ways to adapt or play with the music so students become part of the creative process.
Lastly, having other pieces at a similar level can keep students excited about what the next song in their musical journey can be!
