Slap That Knee!
By Mary K. Sallee
Diverse articulations make this piece exciting to perform! Written mostly in a C minor 5-finger pattern, each hand plays a separate articulation throughout, and the right hand has sections of "slapping that knee," adding to the fun. A splash of accidentals and upbeat, syncopated rhythms in 4/4 meter contribute to create a solo that late-elementary students will love to play.
