This piece for early intermediate performers is so pattern-based that it will be much quicker to master than they expect! Hands stay in the F major 5 finger position (with diatonic and chromatic extensions). One measure of 5/4 time challenges students to count correctly. No intervals larger than a 6th are present in the piece. Students will work on dotted-eighth-sixteenth passages and eighth note triplets.
Key: F Major
Mood: proud, victorious
