Tips for playing Level 1 "Fur Elise"
This particular arrangement of "Für Elise" is at Level 1 (Beginner's level). When you start practicing it, place the right-hand pinky on E and the left-hand pinky on C note to start. You can also see the hand-position tutorial page to find out the hand-position when you download it. You can stay in that position for the entire song. The fingering numbers are provided on every note on the music score. You will be playing only single melody note at a time without other additional notes for harmonic support. There are 1 black key with the left hand and another black key with right hand you need to play. You can play them when you see a sharp sign (#) on the music score. Those 2 black keys and finger numbers are also described on the tutorial page. This arrangement is a higher level of Level 1. Therefore, try this first and when you are ready for the next challenge, try Level 2 "Fur Elise" which has more additional notes and requires more coordination.
