Melody: This piece consists of 2, four-measure phrases. Breathe where it is marked and tongue lightly to play the eighth notes as smoothly as possible. The pitches in this song are exactly the same as the pitches in Song #1. Waves in the Sand is slightly more complicated rhythmically, but you should still concentrate on accurate dynamics.
