“Time To Go” is a late intermediate to early advanced piece inspired by the bluesy mood of 7th and 9th chords.  It was also inspired by the question, “What song would be played at the end of the night in the cantina located in a galaxy far, far away?”

Time To Go Level:

“Time To Go” is a late intermediate to early advanced piano solo.  The lush 7th and 9th chords are combined with different rhythms in 6/8 time.  This creates an ebb and flow feel to the piece.  Meanwhile, the cross rhythms create a sweet, poignant mood.  Put together, this is a fantastic recital piece that your studio audience will remember.

  • Mode: C Major (with additional accidentals)
  • Time Signature: 6/8
  • Concepts: Cross rhythms (3 over 2), ledger lines (up 4, but mostly 2 – 3), parallel octaves w/ sway between notes, 7th chords, 9th chords

This piece was inspired by a variation of a chord progression John Williams has used to create jazzy, elegant moods.  In addition, this might be the easiest piece in terms of technique in the “May The Fourth” collection.

The smallest note is barred sixteenth notes.  The rhythms (including cross rhythms) create a swaying feel to this piece.

The pedal plays an important role in creating the smooth, lush mood.  “Pedal ad lib” is included so your student can explore how much or little pedal is needed to enhance the jazzy, lounge mood.

Time To Go Bonus:

All sheet music comes with original cover art.  “Time To Go” comes with tips for your students to master the piece.

More About “May The Fourth” Collection:

“Time To Go” is part of the “May The Fourth” collection that pays homage to a classic movie saga in a galaxy far, far away.  Your late intermediate to early advanced piano students will love the different takes on various moments or places from the saga.

All piano solos in this collection are at a late intermediate to early advanced level.  Each piece includes 7th and 9th chords (and sometimes beyond) plus sections with cross rhythms.

  • Time To Go: Be transported to the end of the night at a famous cantina!  This smooth jazz piece explores lush chords and interesting rhythms in 6/8 time.
  • Looking Up From the Forest Moon: Look up through the canopy of redwoods to the stars beyond on this famous forest moon.  This piece explores the vulnerable, introspective side of life in 5/4 time.
  • The Misplaced Trooper: Perhaps this trooper didn’t want to originally join, but this oddball march has a dark, yet sometimes playful mood.  This piece is almost entirely composed of minor chords and spans over 4 octaves on the piano.
  • Trek Across the Desert Planet:  Country swing creates a laid back feel as you travel across the (original) desert planet. Ranging from tranquil to mysterious to bold, this 6/4 time piece explores different rhythm groupings and quartal chords in G minor.

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.

The terms of use are there to educate students and their families about copyright law.  We know, but they may not realize what they are innocently doing may cause you to lose your studio licence.
