Piano accompaniment backing tracks
|Practice version (optional)|
Copland composed his ballet Rodeo in 1942, containing this eternally popular Hoe-Down. It conjures up a riotous dance competition and its jaunty theme is recognisable worldwide, partly because it has also been used as the basis for a number of pop music adaptations. Here you can purchase and download the piano part to play along to, recorded by a professional accompanist.
4 crotchet click-beats at beginning to set pulse.
