In this fun piece, a careful look at the melodic contour of the treble and the bass parts will show them moving in opposite directions! In mm. 1-3, the right hand downbeats go C# - B - A, while the left hand bass note goes A - B - C#. Can you find this same 'contrary motion' pattern on line two?

Scan the score for the following: 

  • Contrary motion melodic contour
  • Legato and staccato articulations
  • Dynamics
  • Octave shift in the final measure. Practice this move until it feels easy.
