Students will have their hands full with this short canon. Not only does the key signature have four sharps, but there are also numerous accidentals. Counting can also be a bit challenging because of the frequent, specific rests. A legato articulation is used throughout, but one must also be aware of the occasional accidentals. Some off-beat accents also occur, giving the piece fun rhythms.
