These pieces are an attempt to meet that need.
         "Easy" is of course a relative term, and against Steve's instructions, I have written one piece with TWO sharps in the key signature, and a scattering of (the easier) accidentals throughout. But I hope that if you feel "forgotten" you will enjoy the music!
