Cheshire Cat Cool (Hal Leonard Student Piano Library Early Intermediate Showcase Solo). By Rosemary Barrett Byers. For Piano/Keyboard. Educational Piano Library. Hal Leonard Student Piano Library, Showcase Solos. Early Intermediate. 4 pages. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.296317).
Students will love this imaginative musical picture of the eternally famous, smiling Cheshire Cat. A quick, scampering introductory section leads to a lazy, mock-lullaby theme, with a tempo marking of “Drowsily.” At the coda, the cat disappears in a flurry of quick phrases and a final “Poof!” The composer has added an original limerick to set the scene perfectly!
Level 4 Early Intermediate piano solo. 6/8 meter. Moderate tempo. C Major. 36 measures. Crosshand passages.
