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.
The Golden Hibiscus has notes values that consist of eighth notes and half notes. Play this piece at a slow tempo so that you can finger the notes accurately. Just because this piece has eighth notes doesn't mean that it should be played fast. Accuracy is far more important than speed!

Melody: This piece consists of 2, eight-measure phrases. Breathe deeply at the beginning and at the end of the first phrase. Remember to tongue and slur in the appropriate places.
