Listen to clip:


Man In The Moon is a charming Classical waltz in the key of C major for established beginner pianists at about the Grade 2 (ABRSM) standard.

The opening melody conjures up a scene from a minuet dance at a royal court. However, appearances can be deceiving... In the middle section, a cloud passes over the Man In The Moon, which then modulates to C minor and tells of a more soulful story. The left hand takes over the molto expressivo solo at this point, accompanied by gentle arpeggios in the right hand.

To end this waltz, we return to the original, carefree melody with the Man In The Moon gazing happily down on the dancers...

This piece comes with an atmospheric play-along backing which adds a new and enjoyable dimension to the music. Keep a watch out for the poco rit. - a tempo markings and feel free to experiment with your own expressive dynamics.
