Mean Little Monsters
Looking for something quirky, perky and mischievous? Perfect for Halloween but not limited to it, these pieces are impressive. They sound so much harder than they are! If you've enjoyed my Attention Grabber pieces, you'll love this suite of three short pieces. Late Elementary & Early Intermediate Level.
Available in print and downloadable versions.
The Month Songs
A piece for each month! Twelve themed pieces, each with its own character, art and whimsical style await your students. Use them as recital pieces, as rewards or just as beautifully constructed teaching pieces. Originally published one-per-month, teachers begged for them to be published all together in a book. Voila! Available in print and downloadable versions.
What the reviewers say:
"From the moment these books are in your hands, you and your students will want to open them up and explore the contents. The composer wrote these pieces for her students with ADD, and tested them out with her students of all abilities, including more typical ones. The pieces sizzle with pizzazz! They are designed to be easily learned and remembered, with their infectious rhythms and melodies. There is a good balance of pieces that stay in one hand position, to hand crossing and hand position shifts. Each piece has an attractive hook, as in pop songs."
"Hidy has written another winner. This series was created for students with ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), for whom established repertoire is not compatible. In Hidy's words, these pieces were born "out of desperation," and from her years of teaching experience, she discovered what lies naturally under the fingers.
She also has a talent for making pieces sound more difficult than they are."
