Students will enjoy the quirky nature of this piece. Unique rhythms combined with strange accidentals give the canon a unique sound. Students will need to be careful of staying accurate throughout all of the dotted rhythms. Counting out loud can help them remain steady. Another important element of the piece is being aware of the frequent accent marks, which create some syncopation.
