For Health and Strength, Theme and Variations

I started this to put together some thoughts on how to help my students improv on this theme, but it got a little out of hand. I can’t imagine at what forum I would ever play my version, but here is my theme and variations on “For Health and Strength.”

My variations are:

  1. Blues
  2. Upside Down, Inside Out, and Backwards
  3. Country-Western
  4. Alberti Bass
  5. Johann Strauss
  6. Boogie-Woogie
  7. Haunted House
  8. Latin
  9. Flowing Water
  10. Bossa Nova
  11. Bach Chorale
  12. Persian
  13. Native American
  14. Debussy
  15. John Cage
  16. Chopin
