This charming piano solo calls to mind a child's curiosity and fascination with a prized heirloom - a grandfather's pock watch. The piece happily ticks along in alternating hand staccato notes with simply LH crossovers. Then, the music imitates the watch as it begins to run down, slowing until it stops completely with a long fermata. The B section depicts grandfather winding the watch and the A return sets off ticking happily once more until the end. A delightful way to introduce students to alternating-hand staccato, crossover and easy shifts in hand position, all within simple 5-finger pattern positions.
