Soccer (a.k.a. football in all but the U.S. and Canada) is popular with kids. So popular in fact, that piano lessons are probably competing with soccer for your student’s time! So, why not use the excitement of soccer to motivate your students to practice!
Dribble and Drive is an energetic piece about soccer / football that kids will love. The fancy footwork of soccer becomes the fancy fingerwork of playing the piece in this exciting piece. Dribbling the ball and driving it to the goal is what Dribble and Drive is all about!

Dribble and Drive is great for reinforcing fourths and subtle syncopations.

But even with all of those musical concepts contained in the piece, the notes and patterns fall easily under the hands.
