This little canon has an impish quality. Dotted rhythms and sixteenth notes abound. Since the piece is written in cut time and is marked Allegro, students should make sure their tempo does not drag. Once the left hand joins the right hand, voicing decisions will have to be made. Both hands need to have extremely short staccato notes.
