·  “yes, and?” by Ariana Grande: This highly anticipated lead single from the upcoming album Eternal Sunshine made its debut at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. This song is about overcoming the negative press Ariana has received, and she's not letting it bring her down! Reminiscent of Madonna's “Vogue,” this dance worthy sheet music includes repeated chords and the bass line. Sing along to this uplifting new single!

·  “The Door” by Teddy Swims: From the recently released album I've Tried Everything but Therapy (Part 1), this breakup song feels like the male version of Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive.” It has a retro 70s vibe, and the accompaniment in the sheet music includes the bass line and the chords. Belt out this song about getting over a rough relationship.

·  “Skin and Bones” by David Kushner: From the singer that brought us the hit song "Daylight," David Kushner’s highly anticipated new single is about the longing and desire for that special someone. It begins with a simple blocked chord accompaniment and eventually adds in minimal beats in the background. This allows for the haunting melody to come through. This is a fitting song to play during the dead of winter.

·  “Running” by Norah Jones: From Norah’s upcoming album Visions, this song discusses the complicated parts of being in love, like not being able to sleep, and your mind keeps running. The ideas for the songs on this album came to Norah in the middle of the night or right before falling asleep. This laid-back song includes backup vocal parts and a repetitive piano part, so enjoy singing this cool melody.

·  “Only Murders in the Building” by Jennifer Eklund: This is the main theme from the hit TV series about three strangers that are interested in true crime podcasts, and they eventually wind up creating their own podcast. This intermediate piano solo arrangement by Signature Artist Jennifer Eklund has a fast triplet feel. Begin by practicing slowly, and gradually work up to the performance tempo. *Also available in easy and beginner.

·  “Light My Fire” by Kelly Valleau: Originally a big hit in the 1960s for The Doors, this is an iconic song of the psychedelic era. This fingerstyle guitar arrangement by Signature Artist Kelly Valleau includes the melody and backing parts. Enjoy playing this acoustic version by bringing out main melody, and rock out to this classic.


Unique Pick of the Week

·  “Overture from Dancer in the Dark” by Paul Miller: This moving piece is a deep cut from 2000 movie Dancer in the Dark starring Icelandic musician Björk. The movie has a dark plot, but it includes a beautiful soundtrack. The Overture features orchestral instrumentation, and this arrangement for euphonium and piano by Paul Miller highlights the gorgeous melody played by the brass in the original score. This is a great option for a player to focus on phrasing and musicality. The solo part is also suitable for trombone or bassoon.
