Karma Houdini Piano Student Composing

For several months one of my online piano students and I created a new song called Karma Houdini. The phrase means that the villain gets justice or wins. I have never heard of this phrase, yet the ideal can occur. I wanted to share the piano composition that I believe you and your students will love to play.

At the beginning of the song in the Treble Clef is only playing D, E, and F above Middle C, with octaves of D, C#, Bb, and A chords in the Bass Clef where each measure changes. The song is written in D minor, in 6/8 time signature, where the dotted quarter note is 130 bpm. The B section is adagio, which hints at Harry Potter themes, yet the student and I created something original for us. The block chords make the song sound intense in the B section. After returning to the main motif, the solo concludes with an accelerando of D minor chords starting at the lowest to the highest register of the piano. My favorite part of this song is the extreme dynamics that occur quickly.

What are your students creating? Would like to know. Thanks for your support. Blessings.
