program note
These four short pieces were designed for school–level players. I wrote what I would like to play if I was learning a new instrument and the subtitles are a reflection of my school days:

1 or 2 old mints in my pockets
3 or 4 laps around the back oval
5 or 6 overdue library books
7 or 8 to be in before 9

As I consider myself an A–grade daydreamer I have, naturally enough, dedicated these studies to myself.
