A storm is approaching! Storm Chaser is an intermediate solo that captures the thrill of chasing an enormous tornado across your piano keys. In the key of D minor, this rushing piece swirls between a hailstorm of dynamics, articulations, and chords that makes students feel like they are a part of an action movie! These elements provide a challenge but also a great performance opportunity for thrill-seeking pianists!
