Space Shuttle is a pop style piano solo in C major for beginner players at about the grade 1 (ABRSM) standard.

Description

Space Shuttle is a fun and bouncy piano solo in C major, which can be played with either hand or both hands together, as the melody is mirrored in the left hand (apart from one bar which is in 6ths). The range of notes is one octave above and below middle C so it should be a good fit for beginners at, or just below the Grade 1 (ABRSM) standard.

The final NASA space shuttle mission ended July 21, 2011 when 'Atlantis' rolled to a stop at its home port at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Space Shuttle is a small musical tribute to the Space Shuttle missions - the first of which launched on April 12th 1981.

As Space Shuttle is a shuffle (try saying that quickly!), the quavers should be swung with a 'bouncy' feel.

A funky play-along backing track comes with this sheet music, as well as a slower tempo practice backing track, to get the hang of the piece before playing it up to speed.
