Most have heard someone referred to as a "cool cat." Now, students can hear where the phrase comes from with Jazzy Cat! This playful piece is in 4/4 meter and C major, but don't be fooled, this solo moves forward with a spritely vigor! The use of blue notes---notes written to sound like they fall between the cracks of the keyboard---paints a very jazzy picture. Students will also find that giving staccato notes attention will bring out the sly cat's playful nature. A Federation Festivals 2016-2020 selection.
