Taken from our 2011 Easy Piano Repertoire book, here is ‘Perpetuum Mobile’ by the Penguin Cafe Orchestra. Two of our adult students have started learning this piece this week. I’ll post up a video of them playing it very soon! This is a fun piece to learn as the right-hand has a distinctive repeated part (the perpetual bit of the piece) and the left hand has some lovely, resonant two-note chords. The changing time signature from 7/8 to 4/4 also gives it a quirky feel.
