** Stanton’s Staff Selection – 2007 **
Keys: Eb, F - Meter: 4/4
Rhythms: whole, half, quarter, and 8th note patterns; dotted quarter-8th note pattern
Teaching Concepts: expression, phrasing, dynamic control, programmatic music

The poem of the same name by Sara Teasdale inspired this simple, beautiful melody and setting. The folk-sounding melody and subtle shifts in tempo make this selection perfect for developing expressive playing. Chimes, claves, rain stick, and wind chimes are used to great effect. Your audience will appreciate this lyrical work and your students will love it the more they play it. (2:40)
