A clownish character gives this piece its charm. Numerous accidentals create chromatic passages. Navigating the numerous sharps and natural signs is good practice for beginning pianists. Students need to be aware of the detailed articulations. Each phrase repeats the same pattern of legato and staccato markings, making the piece easier to master.
