One of the reasons I signed up for piano lessons was because I’d flipped through the Alfred Adult All-in-One Piano Course Level 2 book and found myself skipping pasts songs I didn’t recognize. Light and Blue? Theme from Solace? La Raspa? Mexican Hat Dance?
I looked up Youtube videos of people playing. So, this mysterious La Raspa?
And the Mexican Hat Dance?
Is it just me, or were those in Looney Tunes or something similar?
I may have wasted hours of my life watching cartoons as a kid, but if those memories now encourage me to get through all these piano pieces, maybe they weren’t such a waste after all. =)
Then there’s the link between Looney Tunes and opera… I wonder what surprising connections these childhood pastimes will make?
