At The Edge



Ready to dive off that cliff? Or bike down that mountain? This piece was inspired by a very active boy in my studio who needed that piece to keep their attention when they couldn’t be outside 😉


The moment before you take off down that mountain path, the split second before you jump into the lake below that cliff. This piece is quick with syncopation in both hands and plenty of pickups to get that adrenaline pumping! Inspired by a short 3 note motive and plenty of cool rhythms, students won’t be able to stop jamming to this beat. And the small glissando at the end makes this a recital hit! Written especially for my active boy students, the strong bass keeps the beat going without complicating matters when it’s time to practice the hands together!

For practice jumping up and down chords/clusters, see this FREE worksheet on the blog.
