Listen to clip:


Will O' The Wisp is a ghostly piano waltz in A minor for beginner players at about the Grade 1 level (ABRSM).

With it's haunting melody accompanied by simple broken arpeggios in the left hand, this piece features several eerie dynamic changes to set the scene.

A will-o'-the-wisp, also known as a jack-'o-lantern, is a mysterious ghostly light seen by travellers over bogs and swamps. It is said to look like a flickering lamp which grows dimmer as unwary travellers approach, luring them into the swamp.

The second section of Will O' The Wisp modulates into the relative major - C major - as if the traveller has come to their senses, retreating back to the path. However, the beckoning light returns once again... our traveller takes a D.C. and we end the piece at the Fine.

Take care with the legato phrases and staccatos in this piece as they will add to the spooky atmosphere!

Will O' The Wisp comes with a performance audio recording and two play-along backing tracks, both at a slow practice tempo and at the marked tempo of 104 bpm.

I hope you enjoy this eerie piano excursion... but take care that you keep to the path!
