Tips for playing Level 4 "What Child is This":
Please be aware that in this intermediate arrangement (Level 4) of "What Child is This," the left-hand sometimes invades right-hand space. Maintain to bring out the melody, meaning playing the melody with the right-hand louder than the accompaniment part that is played by the left hand. Follow the damper pedal sign precisely so that the song will flow well throughout. The arrangement sounds easy and moving effortlessly. However, it is still at the intermediate level. The left-hand travels a lot beyond octave range, and the right hand has the interval of 3rds moving around. It is quite challenging, but you can make it sound beautiful!
