Quirky rhythms give this piece its dance-like qualities. Students may have difficulty with keeping a steady tempo and maintaining the pulse. Although Diemer writes in a 3/4 time signature, each measure is to be played at a fast tempo “in one.” This can be challenging, though the frequent accents can help keep the pulse. Articulation should be brisk and a strong differentiation needs to be made between staccatos and two-note slurs.
