SKU: AJM17048 Category: Tags: , ,


There are a few tricks and lots of treats for intermediate students in this Halloween-themed piece! This piece is mostly in 5/4, which is why the skeleton dances with a limp! Both hands get a chance to play the staccato melody which includes a little syncopation and a lot of melodic minor scales. The contrasting section startles the listener with a flowing triple meter melody in G major.

Students who had success with Black Cat will find that this piece is a great sequel.

Keys: G minor, G major

Mood: mysterious and rhythmic, then flowing and lyrical in the contrasting section.

Pedagogy: syncopation, staccato, 5/4 time, melodic minor scales.
