Mahogany Moon (Video Lesson)

Mahogany Moon was inspired by the lunar eclipse in July 2018, which turned the moon a mystical dusty red. It was created to capture the magic of such a rare natural occurrence. The piece sounds atmospheric and creates an other-worldly moment for the listeners.

In this 30 minute video lesson, Christy-Lyn breaks the piece down, teaches you how to apply important techniques and how to practice the piece until you can play it fluently.

Purchase the sheet music and video lesson together and follow along while Christy-Lyn teaches you.
