April Showers is an atmospheric, hypnotic piano piece that mimics the fall of rain with an ostinato pattern in the right hand while the left hand jumps from bass clef to treble clef to focus on spatial awareness.
Pianists can follow the dynamics, articulation marks and finger numbers while working on maintaining five finger hand positions, coordination and balance between hands.
This original piece is suitable for children and adults of any age and can be used to help build technique, expand repertoire, perform in recitals or learn for fun.
The approximate duration of this piece is around one minute depending on how fast it is played and is 2 pages.
