The bouncy tune in Basketball Star, written in C major and 4/4 meter, perfectly captures the fun of nailing a musical three-pointer! Students can perform this energetic piece alone, or go "one-on-one" by playing the optional duet with a friend or teacher. Practice of accidentals and dynamic changes will help create an effortless-sounding performance. Smooth slurs followed by light staccatos showcase the student's ability to maneuver across the keyboard as well as the court!
