Level 5

Level 5 is intended for students who have completed the Primer through Level 4 piano tutorials. In most instances only one piece will be assigned each week. If you need a bigger challenge, add next week’s piece too. If you didn’t quite master your piece in one week, work on it for another week.

Week 1

Caprice No. 24 was written Italian guitarist, composer, and celebrated violin virtuoso, Niccolo Paganini (1782-1840). His 'Twenty-Four Caprices for Solo Violin' are among his best known works.

How many measures have the same rhythmic pattern as the first measure? Print the sheet music and count them, and then scroll to the bottom of this page to check your answer. (Make sure to include the first measure when you're counting.)

Level 5 arrangements take far longer to master than beginner pieces. Consider spending 2-3 weeks practicing each arrangement. It will give you enough time to learn the rhythms and notes - and add the dynamics - the icing on the cake.

Week 3
Rage Over A Lost Penny (Beethoven)    Subscribe to Unlock Tutorial

Rage Over A Lost Penny, written by German composer, Ludwig van Beethoven. It is a favorite with audiences and is frequently performed as a show piece, despite the fact that Beethoven never completed or published the work.

Rage Over A Lost Penny goes back and forth between 'legato' (long and connected notes) and 'staccato' (short notes). Practice each phrase with close attention to these style changes. They make this piece interesting.
