It was the series finale of the TV show The Office last night. I’m a die-hard Office fan and there’s nothing more I like than humming along with that catchy theme song knowing I’m in for 30 minutes of pure ridiculous entertainment.
And man, is that theme song ever catchy… and so it should be! After all, the only job of a theme song is to be memorable.
Which is why it’s going to be Theme Song Week at my studio next week. Because nothing but lots of practice can happen from playing pieces that were designed to simply to be catchy!
Check out some of the theme songs I’ll be exploring. In the comments below we’d love to know what theme song gets you humming along!
A total classic. I played this as a child until my arms ached. It’s jazzy and timeless.
Super Mario Brothers Theme
Okay, so it’s a old video game… but it’s very cool to be retro these days.
I’m sure going to miss this!
You may date yourself by dragging out this baby, but those students of yours who love a beautiful melody will appreciate it!
Just to be über-relevant you can’t go wrong with this theme song. And if you only watch one of these videos make it this one; this guy plays the Angry Birds theme song with an actual live bird on his shoulder. Only on youtube 😛
We want to know! If you could only teach one theme song to your piano students, what would it be? Share below.
