“The Magical Pond” has fun elements for young students. The right hand uses the second and third fingers throughout the entire piece and moves around often. Following the fingering will make learning this work easier. The left hand consists solely of open fifths. Some of its accidentals can be challenging. Students can increase the magical feeling by being attentive to tempo, producing a good tone, and pedaling carefully.
