Description

Footprints In The Sand is a reflective pop style piano solo in G major, ideal for beginner pianists at about the Grade 1 level (ABRSM).

The rather apt tempo for this piece is Andante, at a walking pace, and the melody features lyrical phrases in the classic pop form of verse - bridge - chorus. The contemplative 2-bar bridge then returns to finish the piece with a poco rit. in the last two bars.

Footprints In The Sand should be played with plenty of expression. Look out for the piano staccato quarter notes in the bridge section, which provide a contrast between the verse and chorus. You might also notice that the rhythm of the bridge fits the title: Foot__Prints__In__The-Sand...

I hope you enjoy the performance recording and play-along backing tracks which come with this piano sheet music. Try out the slow-tempo practice backing before progressing to the full tempo version.

Finally, here's a little riddle to ponder... Where will you find footprints in the sand where no wind will ever blow them away?

    Students will love the pop style sound of Footprints In The Sand. It also comes with a play along backing track that will give them the feel of playing with a band.
