Don't Bug Me!

Beverly Porter

Categories: NFMC Bulletin (US), Piano Duets

Levels: Elementary/Early Intermediate (Gr 1-4)

From Lady Bug and Friends Both players want to play the primo and partway through the piece secondo decides to go for it, moves up the bench and shoves primo off! Primo has to run to the other end and finish playing the lower part It's good practice for each partner to learn both parts and ensures that both master the rather tricky rumba rhythm. It's also lots of fun and can be "hammed up" to great effect.

Mechanical Man

Levels: Elementary/Early Intermediate (Gr 1-4)

This  would be fun to play as a first ensemble with an equal partner.

Mechanical Man has to be wound up before he'll move.  Halfway through he slows down, stops and has to be wound up again. Secondo plays in a stationary position and though Primo moves for the middle section it isn't  difficult. Highly patterned.

The lilting, tango rhythm is introduced and played throughout by the lowest part with both harmonic and melodic interest for the middle player.
