Precise counting skills are needed for this canon. Dotted rhythms abound, requiring agile fingers. Articulation is another important component of this canon. Both hands alternate between staccato and legato notes, and intense concentration is needed for coordinating the varying articulation. Additionally, students may find the four flats in the key signature to be challenging.
