Things to Review
Middle C Position
Twelve measure piece
Same and Diﬀerent
This is a middle C position review, and more practice with flats. You may have noticed that we keep black keys (whether sharps or flats) only under fingers 2 and 3 in this book. These are the longest fingers, and they fall most comfortably on black keys.
There is a charming moment in the final two measures for note-against-note hands together playing. Same fingers in each hand are used at the same time to help the coordination.
This is the first twelve bar piece in the book. Of course, measures 5-8 are nearly identical to measures 1-4. The last line is a little “coda”.
