3 versions included: one with (strategic) note names, one without note names, and a third version with fingering for the song to be played with the left hand
Single-line melody in five-finger position (D minor)
Simple teacher duet included

Play the piece in different registers on the keyboard (do students like the piece played higher or lower?)
Have students “transpose” the piece by moving the hands to a different position. Don’t worry if you run into interval issues with accidentals in other tonal centers (this is a good lesson in and of itself)
For a challenge: ask students to play the melody-line with both hands in unison.
