This arrangement provides a long-awaited opportunity to introduce the very youngest pianist to melodies composed by women in the time period usually associated with the music of Brahms or Tchaikovsky. Amy Beach was the best-known woman composer of her time and the first in the United States to be world famous. She was the first American woman to write a symphony and was a well-respected pianist in her time. Beach fought hard throughout her life to change the common perception that women's music would always be lesser than men's.
