Cupcake Calypso is a Latin calypso piano solo in D major for beginner players at the Grade 0-1 (ABRSM) standard.

Listen to clip:


Whisk some Latin rhythms into your piano repertoire with Cupcake Calypso, a light and fluffy piano solo for beginners at the Grade 0-1 level (ABRSM).

The right hand starts the performance by introducing the melody with a 'pick up', which is then accompanied by the characteristic calypso bass figure in the left hand. Throughout most of this piece the hands move separately, which makes it a lot easier to play whilst still sounding great.

Make sure you can confidently play the D major scale before trying Cupcake Calypso, as this will really help your right hand with the melody.

There are some fun crescendo dynamics to enjoy during the middle section, which also features some 2-note chords in the right hand.

The fully laden cake trolley is revealed at the end of the piece with a dramatic crescendo from piano into fortissimo with some ending 'hits'. The only question then, is which type of cupcake will you choose?

The downloadable piano music for Cupcake Calypso comes with three MP3 audio tracks:

  • Performance recording (with backing)
  • Play-along backing
  • Slow tempo practice backing

Enjoy your cupcake!

    Brilliant – I tried this out with 2 grade 0-1 pupils yesterday and they loved it immediately. Gave it as sight-reading for a more advanced player and she enjoyed it too. I’ve sent the backing tracks to some of them so it will be interesting to see how they get on with them.
