Students can experience 19th century ragtime first-hand with A Piece of Cake (walk). Originally written as a dance, the cakewalk was often performed by banjo, upright piano, or small jazz bands. Students should picture these instruments as they strut across the keyboard in style! Chromatic lines rise and fall above a playful staccato bass line as this 4/4 solo in C major dances its way through many varied dynamics and accent marks. These accent marks should be played with great gusto to truly capture the dance style of the cakewalk!
