It is marked forte, which means loud. Play with a firm embouchure and always tongue lightly.

Rhythm: Your time signature is two-four time, which means that there are two beats in a measure and the quarter note is equal to one beat. Playing along with MetronomeBot's talking metronome in duple meter will help you maintain a steady tempo.
Azaleas introduces eighth rests. The first two phrases and the last two phrases of the piece have the exact same pitches. However, the rhythm is different. The first line should sound smooth and connected. In the second line you must play rests on the second half of each beat, so there will be half of a beat's rest between each note.

Melody: This piece consists of 4, four-measure phrases. Breathe deeply and breathe where it is marked.
