This late elementary/early intermediate piece creates an ethereal moodscape in a Mixolydian mode. While living in Northern Canada, I had the joy of seeing the Northern Lights. The swirling, colourful lights created a timeless moment of peace, serenity & awe. 

Students can learn this pattern-based piece by rote, use a hybrid approach of note-reading & rote.  It’s also perfect for the student that wants something that sounds hard, but is much easier than it sounds!
