Rise up is a positive, high energy piece that focuses on spatial awareness as the left hand jumps over the right hand due to the alternation between bass clef and treble clef. It also provides the opportunity to use the pedal.
Pianists can follow the dynamics, articulation marks and finger numbers while working on maintaining five finger hand positions, coordination and balance between hands.
This original piece is suitable for children and adults of any age and can be used to help build technique, expand repertoire, perform in recitals or learn for fun.
The approximate duration of the piece is around 35 seconds depending on the speed it is played and is 2 pages.
