This engaging solo is leveled early intermediate because of the hand movement and accidentals, however, it is simple enough to teach an elementary level student by rote! The hands always stay in a “perfect fifth” position, moving up and down the keyboard as needed. It sounds much harder than it actually is, and is a fantastic contemporary recital piece!
Key: C Dorian, then C major
Mood: adventurous, triumphant
Pedagogy: fifths, hand position changes, staccato, D.C. al Fine., repeats (D.C. al Fine and repeats are not in the Large Print edition)
