“Sweet Jasmine” is written in a lilting style and has plenty of musical ideas to explore. Dynamics, pedaling, and tempi changes are all elements of this piece. An interesting component is that both hands share the melody. The pass-off of the melody between hands should be seamless. Playing with a legato touch helps with this. Students can be expressive with the large leaps in the melody, perhaps by taking more time as a singer would.
