With a delicate, sneaky character, “Elf Mischief” is a great piece for helping students practice playing super staccato. The entire work is marked with staccatos, and students should play these as crisply and evenly as possible. Although neither hand ever changes position, the left hand is written in treble clef, which can be challenging for beginning pianists. However, both hands are either in C major or minor positions, making the piece accessible to many students.
