This piece could easily be called "Finger Power" as it is perfect for developing strong fingers. The right hand remains in a fixed pattern that uses C-D-E-flat-F-sharp-G---an easy position for working on firm knuckles. The left hand moves slightly more, and the second finger crosses over the thumb to play chromatics. The tempo is fast, so students are sure to have fun sounding powerful! The optional teacher accompaniment helps to create even more excitement. A Federation Festivals 2014-2016 selection.
