This is a bright piece for elementary level players and a fun way to teach the importance of counting the rests. The written range is kept almost entirely within the staff and the appropriate performance range of pitches on the keyboard is achieved by octave displacement, i.e. the Primo part is performed an octave higher than written and the Secondo an octave lower. As the performance range extends beyond that of a 61-note keyboard, an acoustic piano or 88-note keyboard is required if both players are to perform on the same instrument. Another performance option is to use two 61-note keyboards and use the transpose function to displace the parts by an octave (up for Primo, down for Secondo). Key: C major, with no accidentals. Rhythmic values used: semibreve (whole-note), minim (half-note), crotchet (quarter-note), quaver (eighth- note). Quavers (eighth-notes) always appear in groups of two or four. Articulations/signs used: staccato, accent, slur, tie, repeat, pause. ISMN 979-0-9009679-6-1

    This is a very cute easy for a beginner that can play unison and also play 3rd intervals. Range is not too big for the primo part. I would recommend the teacher to play the Secondo. Intermediate student can play the Secondo as well.
