Music for young performers

Étude-Fantasies (2009), commissioned by the Music Teachers Association of California. The commission specified an intermediate level piece for young performers aged 11-13, and apparently it fits the bill. It's published by CF Peters, Edition 68307.

The movies below were taken by parents in the audience. Three duos of various ages premiered them at the MTAC Conference in July, 2010, and I coached all three. Two of them were caught on video and posted on YouTube, thus.

Incidentally. Do I really sound like that when I talk?
