“Little Beggar” has a pleading quality. This is due to its rhythms, as well as the repetitive patterns. Articulation is quite important in this piece. Two-note slurs occur in abundance. Slur markings also occur frequently, helping to create phrasing. Students should aim for a clean, even, legato touch. Additionally, good voicing is important so that the accompaniment does not become too heavy.
