The Making of a Star is carefully composed to make all ages of elementary piano students sound accomplished, feel amazing, and develop confidence. This easy elementary piano piece will knock the socks off your students and their listeners with its big, grand gestures.
How to teach The Making of a Star
The main theme of The Making of a Star is in a comfortable C position. The introduction, interlude, and ending can easily be taught by rote. Just tell your students to put their left hand in C position and then their right hand on the note just to the right of their left thumb. It’s actually even easier to play these two sets of 5ths than two C position fifths since the thumbs of both hands are right next to each other!
