Dance of the Wind Piano Solo by composer Timothy Brown
By Lea Ann Huegel

One of the great honors in life is to have a piece of writing dedicated to you. To have a piece of music bearing your name across the top of the page lifts the spirit and somehow in the boldness of print makes you a part of history.

Timothy Brown, composer for FJH Publishing, recently honored the local Northeast Area Music Teachers Association of Iowa with a beautiful piano solo “Dance of the Wind.” Released in the ‘Written for You’ piano solo series, this piece is written at an intermediate level, and offers valuable pedagogical elements including L.H. over R.H. melodic voicing, (where the L.H. plays a quarter-note melody over the R.H. which is playing a sixteenth-note accompaniment.)

This dramatic, yet hauntingly beautiful piece allows the pianist to be expressive and allows the audience to be caught up in the ‘dance’ the music creates. Timothy Brown previewed this piece at a workshop he presented in August 2010 at the Cedar Falls West Music. Several NAMTA members were present and were honored that Timothy Brown had written this for them.

Look for “Dance of the Wind” at your local West Music. The beautiful cover art is of an angel walking in a meadow with her arm around a musician and everything is colored in golden hues. This very fitting cover expresses the tone of the music perfectly. Take a moment to note the dedication at the top of the music, “for the Northeast Area Music Teachers Association of Iowa”. Then enjoy playing the beautiful piece.

The Northeast Area Music Teachers Association is a division of the Iowa Music teachers association to find out more about this organization visit. www.iamta.org
