Musette by Johann Sebastian Bach

Musette is a lively little piece that has been popular for hundreds of years. This little dance, that imitates a small bagpipe, is another work from J.S. Bach’s Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach. Every pianist should have this work in their repertoire, not only because it has been composed by the great master J.S. Bach, but because it is an excellent learning piece for hand shifts, articulations, and for the Baroque Style of playing in general. Find included with the interactive SuperScore edition, interesting comments about the work, information about the composer as well as practice tips for learning and performing the work. The score features a MIDI performance by Andrew Harbridge. Both hands have been split in the recording to facilitate one-hand-at-a-time practice. This is a challenging Level 3 piece.
