Frog Driving a Car

For children

This piece is an exercise in articulation, coordination of hands and changing tempos. It's the most difficult of my pieces for children so far. To balance the difficulties, the piece uses only five different notes and the hand lays comfortably with the long fingers (2,3,4) on the three black keys (F-sharp, G-sharp and A-sharp) and the short fingers (1,5) on E and C. (Chopin always started his students with a slightly modified version of this hand position, using B in place of C.)

Waltz of the One Handed Ghost (Yksikätisen kummituksen valssi)

This is a piece for one hand only (left or right). It's a good exercise to practice it with both hands. The piece has only six different notes with the fourth finger in the right hand and the second finger in the left hand playing both the F and F#.

All the notes in both hands are in the scope of the interval fifth so there is no need to move the hands horizontally on the keyboard.

There will probably be a swinging version of this too.
