Reminiscent of a song like Shenandoah, this piece’s singing melody, arpeggiated accompaniment, and open fifths and sixths are perfectly suited to the development of expressive ability. Of particular note is the seamless key change before the reprise of the melody. Students should catch onto the standard accompanimental pattern in the left hand and easy pedaling pattern quickly, enabling teachers to focus on phrasing and dynamic contrasts, both essential to the success of the piece.
