The Victress Sessions: Classical Pop Piano Solos Inspired by Female Composers
The pop-infused music of the “Sessions Books” is making classical music relevant for a new generation of teen piano players.
Andrea and Trevor Dow have given Mozart, Chopin and Beethoven a teen-approved twist and now it’s time for female composers to shine!
The Victress Sessions is a pop-infused tribute to the music of Clara Schumann, Amy Beach, Fanny Mendelssohn, and more. Whether you use the repertoire to ignite a passion for piano or as a jumping-off point for exploring the music of female composers, The Victress Sessions will inspire a new generation of piano students.
For centuries, female composers took a backseat to their male counterparts; now it’s their time to shine. Get this book today and show your piano students what Girl Piano Power looks like!
The Sessions series by Andrea Dow is an inspired set of intermediate piano solos inspired by real, classical pieces of music. Fans of Ludovico Einaudi, Philip Glass, and Jason Lyle Black will love this series.
The Victress Sessions is of special importance, as it highlights women classical composers who have been pushed aside by their male counterparts. As a woman who grew up looking for female representation (and was excited to find it in Star Trek: Voyager, Captain Amelia in Treasure Planet, and few other places), this is a book I wish I’d had when I was younger. I am so excited it exists now.
