Bouncy rhythms are plentiful in this short canon. The sixteenth notes need to be extremely crisp since they give the piece its perkiness. Students may want to count by sub-dividing quarter notes in order to accurately execute the rhythms. Keeping a steady pulse in 3/4 time is also important. Students will have fun with this lively canon.
