Description

Hey Presto! is an upbeat piano solo in G major, ideal for beginner players who are working towards their Grade 1 (ABRSM).

The happy opening melody skips along at 126 bpm and features swung quavers with chromatic movement lying easily under the fingers.

Surprise your audience in the middle section with the sudden mp - f dynamics and watch out for the staccato articulations which will add a sparkle of magic to your performance.

In the last section of the piece, a gradual crescendo leads to a call-and-response between the right and left hands and then moves into a classic jazz ending - as the rabbit disappears into thin air!

The piano sheet music for Hey Presto! comes with three downloadable MP3 audio tracks, including:

  • a performance recording
  • a play-along backing
  • a slower tempo practice backing

I'll leave you with this little saying, which might also be said of musicians:
"The art of a magician is to create wonder. If we live with a sense of wonder, our lives become filled with joy." Doug Henning

Enjoy the show!

    I have enjoyed this piece myself recently and will be giving it to two of my more advanced pupils as light relief between some of their other repertoire.
