Marked Allegretto, this canon has a bouncy character and is in the key of C major. Some of the rhythms are a bit challenging. For example, numerous dotted rhythms and ties are used. In order to intensify them, students should make sure that the articulation is crisp and exact. Also, one needs to be mindful of the numerous rests. Practicing the hands alone can help make observing these details easier.
