Description: An easy piece in 6/8 time that can sound hard when played fast. RH uses the same 5-finger patterns with various harmonies. The melody is played in both hands as a melody workout for the hands. The piece is in ABA form with an intro and coda. Purpose: This piece is great for strengthening fingers equally for uniform tone and developing agility. Suggestions for Instruction: I start with RH-showing the repetition of the melody and parts thereof. Then I point out various LH positions for the 5ths. Key: D minor.
