This short solo in ternary form presents a mixture of challenges for the piano student – tempo changes, RH octaves, a singing main melody that needs sensitive phrasing, LH finger pedaling and a little foot pedaling especially to sustain the RH octaves. Piano students with small hands can always reduce the RH octaves to the lower note only. For some added fun, try swinging the beat to enhance the jazz feel.
