Tips for playing Level 3 "Fur Elise"
This particular arrangement is at an easy level (Level 3). The left-hand part is made very easy so that you can focus on the more difficult right-hand part. The position for left-hand stays in E 5-finger position throughout which means the left-hand pinky should be on E always. However, the right hand has to do a lot of extensions and hand-position changes. This arrangement sounds almost the same as the original of the 1st part that most people are familiar with. It only has the 1st part, and it doesn't go to the challenging section B and C that the original "Fur Elise" has. Some suggested fingering numbers, and specific damper pedal markings are provided on the music score.
