This perky canon has lots of fun dotted rhythms that add to the excitement. Students should make sure that the rhythms are crisp and exact. The staccato notes also need to be full of energy and should be surprising each time they reappear. Both hands are in a D major hand position, which is fairly accessible for young pianists.
