Written in the uncommon time signature of 6/4, this canon will help students to improve their counting skills. Accents and tied notes give the piece a syncopated feel. The key signature can be a bit of a challenge since it has six sharps. Additionally, students may want to practice the hands separately in order to accomplish the precise articulation markings.
