We, the entire staff at Santorella Publications, consider ourselves extremely patriotic which is evidenced by our tireless efforts to support our troops with patriotic fanfare. The birth of our country and the daily sacrifices of those who defend this great nation are certainly worthy of our sincerest gratitude. Our patriotic library would not be complete without a salute to our flag and an expressive appreciation for the beauty of its terrain.
The Star Spangled Banner, written by John Stafford Smith with lyrics by Francis Scott Key, and America The Beautiful, written by Samuel A. Ward, are the two songs that dignify our presence on this earth and the freedoms we so fortunately possess. If not for the sacrifices of so many men and women in arms, we may not be here today. It is imperative that we always give thanks to these true heroes and salute all those, past and present, which have given their lives for the birth of this great country and continue to serve to protect our freedom.
There are no better means in which to express your appreciation than with these two significant titles published by Santorella Publications. This is a great opportunity to teach a piano student about the countless reasons to show our allegiance by learning these two songs arranged for easy piano by Jonathon Robbins which includes the historic “tale-telling” lyrics.
