Three page etude for Late Elementary to Early Intermediate piano students. Uncluttered look with lots of white space to allow for adding practice and performance suggestions.

Very adaptable to different levels: no tempo or dynamic markings which does not mean that tempo and dynamics are not important. Rather, it is intentionally left up to the teacher to determine the appropriate tempo for each student and to explore dynamics along with the student. Anything between a graceful 72 per quarter note and a vivacious 144 will sound reasonable.

In ABA form, with a lyrical middle section, the first page (A section) can be performed by itself, as can the third (variation of the A section), which could be useful for a student who needs to work only on the technical requirements of the A section:

1. broken thirds, moving step-wise up or down, such as are found in Clementi Op. 36 No 1, to work on wrist rotation

2. staccato or tenuto longer note values in one hand against legato shorter note values in the other, a common feature in baroque piano music

3. three-note gestures, always in the right hand, all but one with fingers 1-2-3, to work on drop-and-lift gestures
