So I hope I’m a little more prepared this year as I had just started playing when the season “creeped upon us” last time. Other than buying candy for Trick Or Treaters (I live in the country and have none but the candy disappears) I enjoy the music and movies. Bring your ideas here folks and Happy 🎃

To the young lady who posted the theme from the “Halloween” movie last year, please bring it back as I can’t find it. That was great and I so want to learn it.

I actually came up with a chord progression that sounds good for Halloween. Ill have to record it closer to the time.

I'm working on Schumann Fürchtenmachen.
For weeks it was pretty scary in all the wrong ways, but now most of it is starting to shape up.

Bach's toccata and fugue are quite obvious halloween piece.

My version of toccata part from 4 years ago. It could be better, but I'm pretty happy with it considering how little time I had played piano back then smile

I’ve gotten all of the notes learned for the Halloween movie theme but it’s super slow. I’ll have it to performance speed by next year.🙁

GoldmanT: Very nice improvisation. I especially liked more silent part after build up, before ending.
