Elvina Pearce, Undercover Blues


Elvina Pearce

Swing rhythms and sneaky sounding harmonies make “Undercover Blues” a great choice for students who love detective and spy pieces. A few changes in hand positions add to its pedagogical value. Following the markings for the two-note slurs helps intensify the piece’s character. Some students may struggle with combining the melody with the accompaniment pattern in the left hand. Practicing the hands alone can help them gain confidence.
