Energetic and playing, this canon has a lot of rhythmic challenges. Students may have difficulty with the numerous dotted rhythms and tied notes extending over the bar lines. Careful counting is necessary, especially when the hands play together. In order to capture the animated character, students should make sure that the staccato notes are brisk and the dotted rhythms are sharp.
