FREE! Christine Artemis Pappa: Baby Rag


Baby Rag is a riot of fun, and comes from the colourfully varied early intermediate collection Mosaic 3, recently published by Musica Ferrum as part of this growing, progressive series.

Christine Artemis Pappa points out in her introduction to the piece that the stride left hand leaps and right hand sixths could prove challenging for some, but I think any player by around Grade 4 will be able to have lots of fun playing this jauntily syncopated and memorably melodic skit. Note that quaver/eighth notes here are meant to be swung.

You can catch a few bars of this piece in this promotional video, which also reveals the range and character of the Mosaic 3 book:

The Mosaic series is available from Musicroom here, and digital copies and site licenses are as ever available directly from Musica Ferrum here.
