Good morning and Happy May Day! I chose this Gilbert and Sullivan favorite from The Mikado because it’s such a fun song, and it’s time to bring some fun back into our lives!
🎶 “We welcome the hope that they bring, tra la, of a summer of roses and wine…”🎶
What are your hopes for your spring and summer? Today is the ancient Celtic holiday Beltane, a time when we light bonfires and reflect upon the new threads we wish to weave into the fabric of lives in the coming year. What are you most excited to do after you have been vaccinated and our country begins to reopen? I’m excited to see friends, eat at restaurants, go to the movies, and play music in public again. And most of all I’m excited for an end to the looming fear and isolation that plagued our daily lives under Covid-19. As for new projects, I have started arranging songs for my 2nd and 3rd books for a new series that I can’t wait to tell you about! More details this summer.
⬆️ This is an early-intermediate piano arrangement of The Flowers that Bloom in the Spring, featuring the left hand chord inversions and 7th chords you might have learned in my Upper Hands Piano books 2 and 3. (I like to offer you original sheet music when possible along with my arrangement, but in this case, the original is a very large orchestral score, so just get my arrangement today.)
Remember, I can only post this free sheet music for a year, so print it today!
I hope you enjoy the flowers of spring in your part of the world. Please let us know what you are playing and how you are feeling as the specter of Covid begins to retreat. With love, music and flowers that 🎶 “…breathe promise of merry sunshine…” 🎶 Gaili
P.S. This arrangement of The Flowers that Bloom in the Spring came from my Upper Hands Piano, Songs of the Seasons: Spring book. You can take a look here, as well as looking at my Summer book and my Upper Hands Piano Method books:
