Tonal Prelude #6, in mixed meter, is a waltz like piece that falls into duple and comes back to a triple time
unexpectedly throughout and is highly expressive in the composer's own way. You will find this a great
teaching piece to cultivate your student's musicality.

Fantasy like Tonal Prelude #8 portrays an image of Shenandoah. The initial up and down melodic contour
paints a narrow and uneven valley. The contrasting middle section carries the well-known melody Shenandoah.
In homophonic texture, it is accompanied by and ostinato-like figure which depicts the rapidly running river.

As suggested by the composer, these pieces are designed so that they may be combined in AB, ABA and
other arrangements to form multi-movement works.
