Listen to clip:


The Butterfly House is an intermediate level piano piece in D major for players at about grade 4 (ABRSM) standard.

Inspired by the butterfly house which used to be at Syon Park in London, this piano piece flutters along at a fairly slow 6/8 tempo featuring little half-trill ornaments called 'mordents' and semi-quaver movements.

After a quiet beginning, the middle section modulates into B major, developing into a grander theme before settling back down again with the original melody.

Try to keep The Butterfly House light and fluttering with plenty of expression!

    Pretty piece which is great study using compound time. The pupil who is currently learning this loves it and has been working hard!
