    This piece is one of Bach's simplest pieces not written for children. It is repetitive, but in its simplicity is its beauty. This website rates it as an SMP 6 piece, but I have to beg to differ. The motion in both hands is the same one (maybe two...

    if you'd like) over and over again. There are few accidentals, it's in CM, the rhythm looks more difficult than it really is, and it repeats again and again and again... Beautiful piece for a talented SMP 3 student or an easy piece for an SMP 4 student.

    This little Bach piece is so beautiful. It is easy to play, but sounds a lot harder than it is. I love it and highly recommend it to anyone who likes to play piano just for their own amusement.

    a beginner piano student it made me feel like I really could play something magnificent! It is beautiful.
