Victoria Hernandez’s elementary single is a wonderful way to introduce bringing out the melody, using expressive dynamics, learning D.C. al Fine, key signatures, and pedaling! The piece stays within the D major 5-finger position, making the notes easy to learn, allowing students to focus beyond the notes to develop their musicianship.
Key: D Major
Mood: noble, regal
Pedagogy: pedaling, D.C. al Fine, dynamics
