This piece has great pedagogical value because of the constantly changing hand positions, hand crossings, and unusual combination of time signatures. Teachers may have to explain how to go from 4/4 to 9/8 meter. By the end of the piece, students will have played triads in almost every major key. This is great practice and can turn into a useful theory lesson. One should make sure that the staccatos are extremely disconnected in order to fully convey the bouncy mood.
