This vibrant piece is written with a lilting 3/8 time signature. Students should strive to make the phrases as long as possible. The dotted rhythms can be a bit difficult for young pianists. As with many of the works in the Opus 14 collection, articulation plays a large role and can be challenging. Students will enjoy playing this perky canon.
