Looking for a Word that is Between "Small" and "Tiny"

Any ideas?

I tried looking up synomyms for "small" and "tiny" but came up with "minute" and "microscopic" of which both, to me, seem to be smaller than "tiny" rather than between "small" and "tiny."

It depends on what you are describing. You could use a "pinch" of salt if you're cooking.

This is a rather slight problem. If you think a little about it, you'll realize it's a trivial task to come up with a minor solution.

In the olden days, folks would role their eyes and say, "Here, let me Roget that for you."

But since the internet has made thesauruses extinct like the dinosauruses, I'd suggest you try Google.

The context is that I am finishing up writing a set of 5 pieces for piano, under a minute each. I usually use rather descriptive titles for my compositions, but I don't want something too descriptive this time, on purpose. Therefore, if I use something slightly more creative than "5 Small Piano Pieces" or "5 Tiny Pieces for Piano," then I am still using a creative titling process in an indirect way. Make sense? It doesn't have to make sense, just bear with me.

So far, these are my favorites:

I must say, "5 Insignificant Piano Pieces" sounds pretty darn awesome, actually. I kind of like "5 Puny Piano Pieces," also.

BUT, while each piece is about a minute long, their content isn't puny. Hmmm....

In academics there is the least publishable unit, or minimum publishable unit. I don't know if you can have 5 barest piano pieces.

If they pack a lot into 1 minute each, how about "5 Abrupt Piano Pieces?"
