Just-Because-Its-Halloween

You’re probably wondering why I’m posting about a Halloween piece in June. Well, I just got a package in my mail box and it is my new piece, published by Alfred Publishing! This was the first time I had seen the cover,  so you can imagine how exciting it was to open the package! Thank you, Alfred, for the cute cover! I can’t wait to show it to my students!

When I wrote this piece I was thinking about the first Halloween I can remember. I  was three years old,  just about a month before my 4th birthday. It was the first time I had a costume and was going “trick or treating.” My older cousin came walking in the room with his mask on, and it scared me to death! Then my very sweet aunt told me not to be scared, he had on the mask because it’s Halloween! So thankfully, I was not scarred for life and went on to have many fun Halloween nights. These days I get to re-live my childhood when I write Halloween music!

My favorite costume back then was my cowgirl costume, which probably really dates me! Anyone else remember Annie Oakley?

Just Because It’s Halloween is an elementary piece that is very easy to learn if students have some experience with skipping notes. Both hands are in the D minor 5-finger scale position and there are just enough finger numbers to help out if they are not used to that position.  This is a great piece to help a student who is having trouble playing out of middle C position. It a good piece to give a transfer student who needs something fun to work on while you get to know their skills.  There are words for singing along and a teacher duet that is easy enough for an intermediate sibling.

The first and last section feature staccato notes while the middle section is legato. There are plenty of opportunities for your students to add expression and imagination by using forte and piano and “stretching” the beat at the end of the B section.

This is hot off the press, so it’s not widely available yet. If you’re in the Dallas area, Nadine’s Music Manor is stocking it. In Houston, you can get it at Valentine’s House of Music and they also take online orders. I like to support local music stores if you are lucky enough to have one nearby. On the Alfred site, you can see a preview of the music and here is where it is listed on Amazon. Just Because It’s Halloween

To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment below by Monday, July 7, 2014, at midnight CST telling me your favorite music store to buy Halloween music, either local or online! I’d love to hear from you!

The winner must have a U. S. address and will be randomly selected and announced  after the deadline.  The lucky winner will receive a copy of the sheet music in the mail!

(Comments are moderated, so your comment might not show up immediately.)

[The contest is over and the winner is Patricia in Tucson! Thank you to everyone who entered. I enjoyed reading about where everyone lives and where you buy your music. Thanks for all the congratulations, as I really appreciate all your kind words. This is the first give-away I’ve had on my site and it’s been a lot of fun for me!]

Then, I would like to have a mini-monster concert with all the elementary piano students playing this piece “Just because it’s halloween” at the same time!

      Nancy, glad you like the lyrics. I’ll never win a Pulitzer prize in literature, but as long as children like them everything’s ok.

    Congratulations! I can’t wait for Al at (Al) Ham’s Music to order this piece! Ham’s Music is downtown St. Cloud, MN, and about five blocks from my home studio. When I need something, he gets it. I also have my recitals right there in the store! So much fun!

  • LaVona Cerna

    I love giving my students the opportunity to learn through musical pieces they can enjoy. I used to shop at Sigler Music here in Springdale, AR, but they have gone out of business. Now I purchase most of my music from Sheet Music Plus.

  • Evelyn Yearty

    Looking forward to purchasing your Halloween piece, Susan! I shop for my music online, mostly from primamusic.com because I live over 70 miles from a music store.

  • Cheryl Rytting

    Congratulations Susan! I am one of your greatest fans :).
    I am fortunate to have many wonderful music stores near me in Utah that I get music from. I go to Daynes Music In Salt Lake, Riverton Music in West Valley City or Sandy and Day Murray Music in Murray! I am sure all will want to stock your new Halloween Solo!

  • mary jane turnbow

    I love Halloween music and it’s really hard to get by September which is when I need to begin teaching to get it ready for Halloween. I typically get my music at music & arts in plano. The staff there is GREAT and they have teacher discounts. I hope their buyers get this music
    Infact I will call the area manager.

  • Amy Boze

    Congratulations on the new publication – sounds like fun!

    • Amy Boze

      Kidder Music in Sterling, Il

  • Amber Carroll

    Moore Music in Greensboro, NC. Thank you!!

  • Beverly

    I buy most of my music from Case Brothers in Spartanburg, SC. Great small business that gives courteous, efficient service and will order whatever I need. I love your site Susan! You have helped me so much!

    • Susan Paradis

      I grew up not far from Spartanburg. I sure do miss the peaches. Best peaches in the world.

  • Sandra Coryell

    I like for my students to have holiday pieces, so I’m excited to learn about the ones you’ve just had published. I order my music through Linda’s Music Center in Decatur, Illinois.

  • Laura Eilers

    Congrats, Susan! It looks wonderful. I have ordered from my local music store Instrumental Music and Sound in Ludington, MI but they focus more on guitars. I also go up to Traverse City, MI to Marshall Music- awesome store, great for piano teachers!

  • Leigh

    Our local music store went out of business a couple years ago. Now I shop online, either MusicTime or Sheet Music Plus.

  • Nishaa C.

    My favorite place to buy music is sheetmusicplus.com! Congrats! Your site is wonderful!

  • Sandra Coryell

    I like for my students to play holiday pieces, so I’m anxious to try your new Halloween publications. I need to order through my local music store Linda’s Music Center in Decatur, Illinois.

  • Robbin

    Congratulations on the publication of your piece, Susan! Perhaps now I’ll stop fuming that I can’t use Sunny Solos in NFJMC festivals because the pieces aren’t long enough! I can’t wait to see this piece.

    I usually have to shop online and enjoy using JWPepper.

    • Susan Paradis

      Robbin, sounds like I need to write a book called Longer Sunny Solos! But I think one of the reasons younger students like Sunny Solos so much is because the pieces are short and not intimidating looking.

  • Jill Gubler

    Congratulations, Susan
    ,

    • Susan Paradis

      Thank you very much, Jill. It is pretty exciting for me!

  • Emily

    I try to support our local store when I can, so it doesn’t go out of business 🙂 pickin palace in rock springs wyoming. But it’s tiny and guitar/drum oriented so I often shop in Utah at day Murray music or online prima music is my favorite

  • Juliet Whitlock

    My favorite place to buy Halloween music is musicnotes.com. I have only one local store in my area and the selection is minimal so sad, but that’s life in a small town. Thank goodness for the internet as it led me to many great resources including yours!

  • Jolene Haller

    I like to buy Halloween music from Sheetmusicplus.com or musicnotes.com.

    I’ve found that our local store doesn’t stock holiday music as much as they used to, which is sad. I can remember getting sheet music for my piano lessons as each holiday approached and that made lessons more exciting, to see what music I would get!

  • Debra Carlson

    I have two favorite places to purchase music. Hoffman Music in Spokane Washington is the local store, and they have an awesome selection. On the rare occasions I can’t get what I need there I shop online at sheetmusicplus.com

    Thanks for all you do!

  • Regina

    Prima Music!! Thanks, Susan!

  • Francie Brown

    I buy my music from sheetmusic.com

  • Kristy Coleman

    I love using primamusic.com. They are always so customer minded and even send a small sheet of stickers and a personalized thank you note with every purchase. I generally like to shop local, but unfortunately local stores do not have this quality of customer service. Plus, members receive 15-30% discounts on all music and free shipping over $30. Such a wonderful company!

  • Barb Irwin

    My favorite store to buy Halloween music is The Piano and Organ Center at the Great Northern Mall in Cicero, NY. They allow local music teachers to use their large facility for piano recitals. Students who participate receive $5.00 gift certificates to purchase music there. I send them there in the fall for Halloween Music for our themed Halloween recital where students play wearing their Halloween costumes.

  • Fred Siika

    Hi Mrs. Paradis,

    Congratulations on your new piece. I will definitely check out the preview on the website and next time I’m in town I’d be more than happy to purchase a copy for my students. Thanks as always for all the value you provide.

    PS. My mom told me you had something for me about 2 weeks ago but I had already left Plano.

    • Susan Paradis

      Hi Fred,
      I can’t sell you this piece, but you can ask a music store to get it for you. It will be fun if a student of mine who is now a teacher wins!
