Accent on Youth is a collection of piano solos written especially for youth in the LDS Church. A few of your favorite hymns and songs have been arranged to be true piano solos on an intermediate skill level. Some of you will find the arrangements easy, some will find them a little more challenging but they will be within the reach of most everyone! As an additional help, the music has comments in the margins explaining how to play or interpret a particular passage.
This collection of solos is ideal for performance at church functions. They are especially suited for intermediate students to learn how to perform for an audience. Piano teachers can assign these solos to help their students have good wholesome performance repertoire.
Woven into these solos are contemporary musical ideas to make each piece interesting and fun to play. The theme of each solo can be quickly recognized, it is then varied and expanded with its own musical ideas. Because of its simplicity and interest, this collection is sure to appeal to all LDS youth who enjoy their time at the piano. We hope that you enjoy! Music is a gift from God. Play these songs of Zion with joy and thanksgiving for the Gospel and for the talent that you have been blessed with!
