Your beginning students who are playing on the black keys want to play amazing sounding pieces too! And Watch Out Here I Come is going to make them sound amazing at your halloween recital. Students get to knock on the piano, use easy black keys patterns, play a really catchy, creepy motive and do it all in an easy to learn piece. Beginning students will love it.
What level is Watch Out Here I Come?
Watch Out Here I Come is early elementary. The shortest rhythm value is the quarter note. This piece only contains quarter notes, half notes, and quarter rests (just a few), so it’s perfect for those students who have only had lessons for a short time. Students play the music based on finger numbers, just like in most beginning black key piano solos.
In addition, piano students who are also learning to read on the staff will love playing this piece. Why? Don’t forget that one of the ways to help students gain confidence is to give them pieces that are “easier” than their current level. This allows them to learn the piece very easily and help develop that confidence in playing. So, you can use this piece both with early elementary students as well as ones that are just beginning to read music to help them develop that confidence and enjoy playing easier pieces.
What are the features of Watch Out Here I Come?
This piece features a really spooky, but easy-to-play motive. Plus, students get to knock on the fallboard of the piano, for an even creepier sound!
What about the teacher duet?
Yes, there is a fun teacher duet included with this piece. It is intermediate level and falls easily under the hands. Even though it is in the key of Gb (like most black key pieces), we have put the C flat accidental markings in parenthesis since it’s so easy to over look these.
