Left-hand dotted half notes with right-hand staccato intervals on beats two and three give this elementary piece in 3/4 meter a definite waltz feel. The melody is divided between the hands. Long melodic lines, comprised of skips and steps, give students opportunities to practice shaping phrases. An optional duet accompaniment provides harmonic variety and interest.
