Piano Solo
Waypoints for piano was written with intermediate to advanced piano students in mind. Each of the first eight little pieces exploits a particular pianistic and compositional technique, often making reference to classic works in the literature. The final set of variations has its own theme, but uses each of the previous eight pieces in turn as the basis for the variations. The title refers to the navigational points that satellite navigation systems use to guide us on a journey by land, sea, or air. In this case, the metaphorical journey passes points of reference that are at least somewhat familiar to every musician.
