This piece accurately conveys the joyous mood of a fresh, new morning. Students will enjoy the simple, perky melodic line. Following the slur markings will help keep the sound delicate. The accompaniment is well-suited for the beginning pianist since the hand position rarely changes. Though no dynamic markings are given, students should consider changing dynamic levels during the repeated sections.
Dew Drops, Opus 127a is available through Hal Leonard Co.
