Black Cat is one of those pieces that is exceptionally fun to play and even more fun to watch! Late elementary students get to practice reading flats with a soft, staccato style, then leading to either surprise accents at the end of the line or a series of octave hand crossovers, including a fabulous finale where the performer gets to play every C on the piano!

Mood: mysterious, curious, surprising
