Description

Strutt your funky stuff with Step By Step, a pop style piano piece in the key of Dm for established beginner pianists at about the Grade 2 (ABRSM) standard.

The tempo of this piece is a groovy 108 bpm and features a rhythmic and octave-based melody, with dotted quaver - semiquaver (dotted quarter note - eighth note) rhythms in the left hand. Keep these nice and crisp. It might help to imagine you are playing a funky electric bass along with a drum beat - check out the performance MP3 recording, which comes with the sheet music, to get the idea.

The middle section then steps into a smoother right hand melody with an unexpected chord modulation - a little 'twist' - to bring us back to the opening melody.

See if you can 'hear' the rests in this piece. The silences, when you're not playing, are often just as important as the notes!

Once you can play Step by Step all the way through comfortably, try playing along with the groovy MP3 backing track or the slower tempo practice backing. You should find that playing with the backings make a positive difference to your performance and it's also great fun to 'get in the groove'!
