This cheery canon is in B-flat major, though the hands are in an F major pentatonic position. This makes it easier for beginning students to be comfortable with the notes. Students should make the phrases as long as they can. Articulation is especially important since it helps distinguish the lines. A fast-moving tempo gives the piece its desired character.
