Tips for playing Level 2 "Beautiful Dreamer"
This is Level 2 (very easy) of "Beautiful Dreamer" for piano solo. However, you or someone else can sing along. The separate lyrics page is included in the PDF file.
First, to play Level 2 "Beautiful Dreamer," please find a hand position on the tutorial page after you download it. There are fingering numbers provided on every note on the music score. You'll be playing both melody line (singing line) and harmonic notes to support the melody. Therefore, it requires more coordination between right and left hands and between different fingers than Level 1 "Beautiful Dreamer." There are 5 black keys that you need to use several times on this Level 2 "Beautiful Dreamer" which are described on the tutorial page. When you need to use your pinky and or thumb on black keys, it is the best for your entire hand to move above the black keys (meaning closer to the black keys or farther inside) so that you can reach the black keys with short pinky and thumb effortlessly without twisting your wrist. If you think Level 2 "Beautiful Dreamer" is too challenging for you, please try Level 1 "Beautiful Dreamer" which plays only the melody line (only one note at a time).
