One can imagine dancing puppets when listening to this charming waltz. A sweet melody soars above a waltz-like accompaniment pattern, which is shared in both hands. Because of this, students must be attentive about voicing. Long phrases keep the piece flowing well. The left hand has some quick eighth notes acting similar to grace notes, and these can be challenging due to their speed.
