Playing super crisp, short staccato notes is an important aspect of this canon. This can be challenging for students who do not have well developed finger dexterity. Keeping a steady pulse and a quick tempo are two other crucial components of this piece. Some students may have difficulty with the tied notes, but counting out loud can resolve this issue.
