Review: Spotlight Solos

Lesson resources, Reviews


Jennifer Eklund (Piano Pronto) recently came out with a new supplementary book that I wanted to share with you today. Spotlight Solos is a highly motivating supplementary solo book for Late Beginners through Early Intermediate students. You may recognize some of the pieces that are available elsewhere, but may have been arranged a little different then the original version.

Someday is perfect for those students that enjoy the pop style arrangements such as Taylor Swift.

Spanish Dance is a fun piece to play that is upbeat with fun syncopated rhythms.

End Game is a studio favorite that is played fast and has lots of LH crossovers for students to have fun with. Boys and girls alike enjoy playing this one! Since it’s in C minor it would even work well for Halloween time!

The Return is another pop style piece that is very motivational to learn and play.

No Limits is an exciting piece especially for boys (but girls like it too!). I love the rhythms in this one!

Bluesy Tuesday is a fun jazzy piece that practices swing and triplets.

Super Spy Guy is another great piece that would be perfect to play at Halloween time or any time. Sneaky fun!

Oh Snap! gets the student snapping and swinging. Another great piece for students who enjoy playing jazzy solos.

Skipping Town was written with the teacher in mind. Perfect for students who need to practice their steps vs. skips and 2 note phrases.

The Chase is another favorite. Fast and furious and oh so much fun to play! It’s one of those “sounds harder then it is” pieces that inspires and motivates a student to keep playing!

Spotlight Solos is 5 star book that is jam packed with motivation pieces for students to play. Each piece will become a favorite as they learn them. A student saver must have!
