Tips: You may be tempted to learn just a few lines because the tune repeats itself. Although it’s a short method, you should try to learn each line so that you can play with accurate timing.

Song difficulty: It’s quite easy to learn once you know where all the keys are on the keyboard. This song can be a useful form of exercise for beginner pianists and intermediate pianists who would love to accompany the melody with chords.
