Note: The limited note usage (D – B), reliance on step-wise melodic movement,  and straight-forward but somewhat varied rhythmic patterns of this tune make it an excellent piece for those learning read music.

Skills: D Major; 4/4 time; scalar patterns; simple familiar rhythms with some variety; echo dynamics; some dotted rhythms. The scale-based melodic figures and similarity to other more familiar folk tunes make this an excellent piece for practicing reading.
