Elie Siegmeister

This piece is upbeat and jazzy, perfect for students that have strengths in playing more complex rhythms. Ties, accents, sforzandos, and slurs abound. Though not marked, a detached sound is fitting for most of the eighth and quarter notes. Keeping the left hand a bit subdued gives the melody a chance to shine. Capturing the vivaciousness and exacting rhythms of “A Bit of Jazz” is foundational for producing a convincing performance of this piece.
