This exceptionally joyful piece will be a favorite with performers and audiences alike! Staccato pop styling with simple chords and catchy melodies make this piece a motivating staple in the studio and will become a “go-to” piece for intermediate level kids and tweens and teens and adults and … well, just about everybody! The flourish at the end of the middle section sounds like it is concert-technique-level, but it is deceptively easy.
