When your students hear this delightful piano solo, it's guaranteed that they will exclaim, I've gotta play that piece! Bill Boyd's done it again with this perpetual motion mini-toccata for the elementary performer. Adults and young students alike will love the lively 5-finger motive that keeps them on their fingertips as they move around the keyboard in 5-finger I- IV- and V- chord positions. A real winner!

C Major; 4/4; Tempo: With drive!; 30 measures; alternating hand, eighth-note, 5-finger position melody with some two- and three-note chords in RH that add well-timed breathing places between the headlong exhilaration of the toccata melodic line. Ends forte, with a big splash. Reading range: full staff; Perf. time: 45 seconds
