Side Notes:

Helpful Hints:

This is a favorite piece of mine. To me it is a scene


out of a movie. I see a lake surrounded by trees, with
shafts of light coming through clouds after a storm.
The feeling is perfect stillness.

Try to paint the picture I describe in the side notes. Don't be


afraid to adjust or suspend the demands of tempo to fit the picture
you paint. I have marked some possibilites with ritards and fermatas.

These #s are for rhythm help. I like letting the eighth note equal 1 beat so you can avoid the dreaded "ee-and-ah".

Pedal ad-lib, except where noted

(play R.H. notes an octave higher)
