Did you know Canon in D, Pachabel, was originally written for strings?
Today the arrangement is written for piano, woodwinds and other instruments.
This beautiful piece is one of the most requested for wedding ceremonies outside of the Bridal March!
This piece is a perfect fit for musician's repertoire. I would be overjoyed to instruct you or your child in learning such a great musical artifact!
