Marked allegro, this canon needs to have a sprightly tempo. Keeping a steady, clear pulse is also necessary. Students should make sure that they keep the staccato notes light and perky so that the mood does not become too heavy. One must also make sure that the legato passages offer a strong contrast to the shorter notes.
