This canon is primarily a study in two-note slurs. Students will need to be familiar with this articulation as well as with legato passages and occasional staccato notes. One must also be aware of the numerous accent markings that appear on the second beat of each measure. This gives this piece a syncopated feel. Keeping a brisk tempo keeps the energy level high.
