0riginally a Polish folk dance, a mazurka often has an accent on the second beat in 3/4 time. Students should be aware of this unusual pulse. The accompaniment is simple, consisting mostly of thirds and open fifths. The melody should be well-voiced and lilting. Good fingering is important for being able to play with a legato touch in the right hand.
