This cheery piece can help improve one’s counting skills. Some of the rhythms are challenging because of dotted notes and frequent rests. The key signature can also be difficult because of the four sharps. When combined with a fast tempo, this component can be hard. Students should also be aware of the detailed articulation markings as well as the carefully placed accents.
