More about this Level 1 "Canon in D" by Pachelbel:
"Canon in D" is one of most famous and popular music work that this German composer, Johann Pachelbel (1653 – 1706) in baroque era wrote. Canon in D has been very popular on several occasions such as Christmas and wedding.
Because we received a lot of requests, we finally came up with an arrangement that sounds good even though it's an arrangement for beginner's level. This particular arrangement is for piano solo. This arrangement is written in the key of C major even though the original key was in the key of D major. Because it was written originally in the key of D major, oftentimes this work is also known as "Canon in D". And he wrote this piece originally for 3 string instruments.
Even though this is an arrangement for beginners (Level 1) there are 3 pages of music and a lot of notes all the way through. We provided fingering numbers on all the notes. The good news is that players can stay in one hand position for the entire song and that there is no black key. Please refer to the hand position tutorial page. We provided specific pedal markings. However, the pedal technique is difficult for beginners. Therefore using it is optional.
