All notes in this piece can be played on open strings of orchestra instruments. The teacher can accompany with a waltz style on the piano in D major. The format can be confusing because the notes are not grouped by measures but just by letter. Each letter is the length of a dotted quarter note. This piece is great for pizzicato position, waltz style, and for students who are in the middle of learning to read music. Very young private string students could even learn this piece.
