Michael Turner's Waltz

A beautiful waltz, typically played in G (but feel free to play it how you like). Commonly attributed as a traditional English waltz, as found in the Sussex Tunebook, it also appears in Mozart's KV 536 (Six German Dances), although it's hard to know if he wrote the tune or simply heard a traditional tune and incorporated it in his piece.

Luca Celano has written a lesson on this tune; music notation, how to play it on melodeon, and much more. Thanks Luca! - find it here:

Good luck!

I hope its helpful! All my blog stuff is geared towards specific pupils, but I've tried to make them more general as well. I'm very very happy to field any questions! The Mozart piece is available here http://bellowsandstrings.blogspot.com/2010/01/michale.html

Lovely! Thanks for the link to the recording, Luca. As posted on a related thread, the score is available here, if you want to follow the music while listening.

Is that the Boskovsky recording?
The sheetmusic of the MT waltz part is also here (ignore the D.C.).
