The rhythms used in this piece are repetitive, so will be easily learnt and recognised in the future. The feel of a canon is utilised in each four bar phrase and the melody is shared right around the orchestra. Encourage the use of whole bows for fortes and less for the lower end of the dynamic range. The piano part is not essential, but will fill any missing parts.
