Light and delicate, this piece offers a chance to practice producing a good tone while playing fast staccato notes. Differentiating the staccatos and legatos is a crucial element of performing this canon. Students may want to practice the hands separately in order to achieve clear articulation in both lines. Additionally, the rests need to be carefully observed.
