This adorable canon has short, disjointed phrases that are separated by rests. Following the instructions for accent marks is imperative for capturing the jovial character. Students will enjoy playing in the familiar key of F major. Not having to worry about numerous flats or sharps allows them to pay more attention to other aspects, such as legato. In general, a smooth touch is needed for this canon.
