Frequent leaps with sf markings make it easy to hear a frog hopping. This piece never sits still: hand crossing and hand position changes leave no time for boredom. Some of the accidentals might be surprising for students but are manageable because they repeat often. A steady tempo should be maintained, despite the regularly changing rhythms. This is a great time for the metronome!
