This is one of James L. King III’s fastest pieces! This novelty ragtime showstopper by was composed in homage to Zez Confrey (Kitten on the Keys, Dizzy Fingers). The piece starts off at a brisk pace, but on the repeat, the student can show off their technique and play it as fast as they possibly can! Applause is virtually guaranteed after a successful performance of this all-time favorite!
