How Do I Know...(SATB / Piano) is a piece in binary form, that is, a peppy section followed by a legato section. It is composed by creating a contrary canon, at the fourth, and basing it on a cancrizan, (the music played against the backward version of itself). The music is fresh and bouncy and the melodies are likely to remain in the minds of those who sing it, as well as those who listen to it. This piece has never been premiered! It is of medium difficulty.
