An original little theme of mine with several variations, composed for Pianoforte.
This was written to show my IBDP music students some ways of writing variations, hence the rather eclectic choices which include:
The style of Mozart, Swing, March, Boogie Woogie & in the Minor mode.
The form of a theme and variations consists of a melody, or theme, followed by variations of that melody. Composers often use theme and variation to write an entire piece or to write one movement of a larger piece. It is most often used in instrumental music
The Art Of Variation: "In music, variation is a technique where material is altered during repetition; reiteration with changes. Changes may be harmonic, melodic, contrapuntal, rhythmic, and of timbre or orchestration."
