The One-Handed Creeper

A “creepy” solo for piano left hand

The title of this piece might sound like a horror movie trope, but what else would one call an scale etude for piano left hand? Well-crafted for an early intermediate pianist, this delightful romp lies beautifully under the hand, making its crisp staccatos and “creepy” scales a pleasure to play.
