Kids love sports and the competitive energy of basketball is engaging to students of all ages! Buzzer Beater features a “time out” where the performer can improvise. But don’t worry, this small section is super easy. All they have to do is play a bunch of G’s in any way they want, any rhythm they want, and any dynamic they want. It’s a great way to give students the independence they long for, but with parameters that make whatever they play sound great.

Your can add even more fun to the piece by downloading a “buzzer sound” app on your phone or iPad and make the buzzer sound at the end of “Buzzer Beater” right when the student plays their own buzzer note!

Buzzer Beater is approximately late elementary level. The smallest note value in the music is the eighth note. The piece falls easily in the hands, lying comfortably in 5 finger positions. The student moves up and down the piano, exploring a full range of sound, but in an easy way.

    I love Buzzer Beater! Thanks for addressing the sports-related gap! I’m looking forward to using that final buzzer at my spring recital.

  2. Jodie Jenson

    I love this new piece! To have an improvisational element in a piece is just a right recipe for fun.

  3. Dorla Aparicio

    Your compositions are so addictive! Just bought it.

  4. Karen Snow

    Love your music. My boys really like buzzer beater – actually even the girls. I think it is their favorite. They love the part where they get to make it up!

  5. Ann Taft

    Buzzer Beater is another fast paced, creative composition. The boys in my studio particularly love that they can play music about sports. (Last year it was all about food with Tasty Tunes). And what student, boy or girl, doesn’t like to play fast? The improvisation section is especially fun!

  6. Dorothy Claire Glover

  8. Christy

    My students that play sports have really enjoyed this song! I love how fast and exciting it is, the kids are able to imagine themselves playing their sport in this song. Very fun!
