A Title for a book filled with duets for adult beginners?

Hi all,

I hope you remember my thread about the duets I've composed for my partner and the size of fonts. If you've noticed the past tense, good for you: I've done 10 and they are more than enough at 38 pages, so I'm very close to printing.

And the question hit me: What is the title for this collection.

I can't think of any title, to be honest, while titling the pieces has been easy enough:
Free from all
Tango
A Streaming Valse
Fleeting Glimpses
Equinox
etc. (all these are titles of individual pieces).

Any ideas, please?

The winner will receive a copy for free, just to say thanks.

Nikolas

PS. I seriously hope I'm not breaking any rules with this thread.

Because you said you wrote the music with your partner in mind, how about something like:
"Moments Together"
"Shared Moments"
"Music with Friends"
"Among Friends"
"Making Music Together"

Piano Duets for Fun

You can go with something more generic "Duets for Fun: Piano" so that in the future you can rearrange the pieces for other instruments such as "Duets for Fun: Violin" & "Duets for Fun: Flute".

Look forward to getting a copy when it becomes available in Canada.

You guys are awesome!

I will run some of the titles with a couple of persons (my graphic designer mainly, who is very keen on offering marketing advice) and I'll get back to you.

Your suggestions are simply wonderful!

"Shared Moments" suggested by enw10 is a wonderful all around title in my opinion. Other titles would be good only if they match the style of your compositions. I mean "Tango" seems very good, but only if there is a tango among your compositions.
