“The Ugliest Piece in the World” is an easy, quirky piece for pianists with a big sense of humor. Some kids refuse to play “nice” pieces, and just want to bang on the piano and annoy people. Rather than fight them, work with them! With this piece, they can bang away, destroy the sheet music, and act out on stage. Meanwhile, they are getting many musical nutrients, learning about extreme ranges, fortissississimo, minor 2nds, counting and resting, and moving quickly along the piano. As the saying goes, “a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down!”
