A Wizard in the Kitchen actually started life as a piano duet where the score was played by the two performers as the story was read out by a third person, the narrator. The duet has since developed into a more adaptable product that can be performed by just two people, where the secondo player can also narrate. A duet version is now also available for guitar. Playing and talking is not an easy task for most people and so any instances of the secondo player having to play and narrate at the same time are kept to a bare minimum and where the music score is largely just a repeated pattern.
An option of having a third person to narrate, i.e. a parent, is still possible with the use of the narrator’s book. The primo parts of both duets are very similar to the piano and guitar solo books and videos but there are a few differences.
