I have a six-year-old and a three-year-old, and man, do they love to run! They run around the house, inside the house, outside the house, into walls, into closets, they run everywhere. And yes, sometimes they run in circles. But it’s okay. It’s good for them to release ALL that energy before bedtime!!
Running in Circles is a solo piano piece for the late-beginner. The piece presents a couple of challenges including moving to different five-finger positions and the use of the damper pedal.
It requires a great deal of concentration and coordination. But I promise your students won’t want to run away from this piece! They’ll run smack into it once they know how impressive it’s going to make them sound.
