Tips: If you have not heard this song yet, I suggest you do that before taking this exercise. It’s easier to learn to play a song that you enjoy. Also, to give it that “happy – bouncy” feel, tap the piano keys a little harder than you would normally do.

Difficulty level: This song is so simple from beginning to end. Even if you can’t play the piano, you can use the chart to know which letters belong to each key and start playing.
