Theme and Variations

Arthur J. Michaels

Grade 2

€œTheme and Variations" by Arthur Michaels is a grade 2 composition featuring easy instrument ranges and pleasing contrast among the variations.
€œTheme and Variations€ begins with an eight-measure chorale-like theme followed by five variations. The theme is played mezzo forte. The piece then builds in intensity from the first variation€™s mezzo-piano dynamic to a last variation€™s double-forte finish. €œTheme and Variations€ provides ample opportunities to teach lessons in intonation, soli and ensemble playing, blending, phrasing, maintaining a steady tempo, observing dynamics, playing contrasting legato and staccato passages, and making easy key changes.
