Georg Philipp Telemann

This dance in binary form by Telemann features repeated scalar figures that give students the opportunity to focus on dynamic contrast. Figures are often repeated between the right hand and the left hand, making voicing another area to focus on. Scalar patterns are dominant over arpeggiation. When developing the character of the piece, students should think about the liveliness of the bouree.
