Giddy Goat Gallop is a Blues Ska piano solo in C major for beginner primo players at about the grade 1 (ABRSM) standard.

Listen to clip:


Here's a fun duet number for beginner primo pianists with a simple and catchy melody, over a more advanced 'Ska' style Secondo accompaniment. Ska is a style of popular music with fast tempo and a strong offbeat. It originated in Jamaica in the 1960s and was a forerunner of reggae.

The primo part will suit beginners at the Grade 1 (ABRSM) standard.

This piece is best played lightly with a 'galloping bounce'. Also, watch out for the Dal Segno (D.S.) dynamics!

Don't have anyone to play the Secondo part? Download the Giddy Goat Gallop mp3 backing track, featuring the secondo, percussion and bass. There's also a practice version of this at a much slower tempo.

Two of you at the piano? Try challenging yourself to play along with the bass and drums backing track, which also comes with this sheet music download!
