This piece simply flies by! It is easy for performers to imagine Belinda the chipmunk effortlessly swinging around a birdfeeder. Built on C Major triplet scales, this piece requires agility in both hands. Be mindful of the written accents on the first beat of the measure to keep the correct pulse. This is a great piece for playing dynamics that match the contour of the phrase.
