This is a lovely, fairly easy waltz. Perhaps the most difficult thing here is a quintuplet in the last beat of the fourth line. Whereas a triplet over one beat requires you to play three notes in that beat, a quintuplet over one beat requires you to play five notes in one beat. This can be a little awkward at first, but it becomes easy with a little practice. Also look out for slow triplets, requiring you to play three notes over two beats. Kessinger used a lot of vibrato, which is denoted in the notation by squiggly lines to the left of notes to be played vibrato. He played this waltz rather slowly, so don’t rush it.
