Both hands are quite busy in this pleasant work. Much of the harmony is based on major sixths. The left hand has tied dotted half notes. Since the emphasis is on the second beat throughout the piece, the pulse can feel a bit misplaced and uneven. Accurate rhythms can help counter that tendency. Students should make sure that the repeated notes in the melody remain clear and steady. Emphasizing the dynamic contrasts adds a lot of variety to this piece.
