The song is presented here in the D minor key, which means that it uses B♭ note. Τo be more precise, we should characterize the scale as modal (Aeolian mode from D) due to the absence of the leading note (C#). Time signature is in 4/4. Although it extends beyond the octave, its simple rhythmic values – quarter notes – make it easy enough for a beginner.

Watch the video a couple of times and study each part at your own pace until you get the hang of it. Remember to use both mallets as much as you can. For this purpose avoid using only the hand that is more convenient for you (e.g. the right one if you’re right-handed) as this an important basic technique.
