15 Patterned Piano Solos

These solos are built on patterns that are easily recognizable and get fingers moving quickly. Students and teachers will be rewarded by their rhythmic fun, the virtuosic sounds of the faster pieces, and the simple lyricism of the slower ones.

The compositions span a variety of styles, and introduce the glissando, tone cluster, narration, cadenza, and sympathetic vibration.
