From this solo's program notes:

Just like the name suggests, this solo ought to be played at a slow tempo with a soft dynamic. It helps with the more involved linear patterns and independence, as well as the new sixteenth notes.


New skills include:

Reading sixteenth notes. Reading ahead quicker with smaller lines. Playing at a controlled, slower tempo. Maintaining a

soft dynamic throughout, playing piano and mezzo piano. 4-on-the-floor kick drum.


Difficulty: Grade 1


Length: 1 minute
