ABRSM Initial Grade - Piano Exam Pieces
D. Parke - A Marching Tune (No.1 from Tunetime)
ABRSM Initial Grade – A1

This march features forearm bounces alternating from one hand to the other, contrasting with smooth C major five-finger positions. The player might sense the modulation to the dominant key in the middle as a journey away from home.
