Theme and Variations

Arthur J. Michaels

Grade 2

Theme and Variations  by Arthur Michaels is a grade 2 composition featuring easy instrument ranges and pleasing contrast among the variations.
Theme 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 mezzo-piano dynamic to a last variation double-forte finish. Theme 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.
