This canon gives students an opportunity to play in 9/8 time. Keeping a steady pulse is especially important and yet can be difficult because of the numerous rests. Performers need strong skills with playing confident, yet perky, staccato notes. Clarity should be one of the primary goals. The occasional accents are also crucial and should be carefully noted.
