About "March" from The Nutcracker:
"March" is from the orchestral work for the ballet suite, The Nutcracker composed by a Russian composer, Pyotr Tchaikovsky (1840 - 1893) from the romantic era. The Nutcracker is probably the best-known ballet music composed by Tchaikovsky. It's been extremely popular in the U.S.A. during the Christmas season.
Tips for playing Level 4 "March" from The Nutcracker:
This particular arrangement is at Level 4 (intermediate level). No sustain (damper) pedal is necessary for this piece. In the 2nd section, there are a lot of 16th notes. Therefore, start the piece not too fast otherwise it's going to be very difficult to play the 2nd section within the same tempo. Play the staccato notes very bouncy, lightly, and crispy, not heavy even though most of the staccato notes have accent sign on them. Remember to do the repeat and 'D.C. al Coda.'
