Tips for playing Level 3 "In the Hall of the Mountain King":
This particular arrangement is at an easy level (Level 3). It's written in the key of F minor instead of the original key which is B minor, to accommodate piano players at Level 3 (easy level). You'll be using the same one hand-position. However, it moves up an octave higher 3 times. After you download it, please locate the hand-position on the hand-position tutorial page. There are also a few black keys you'll be playing. You can find those black keys described on the tutorial page as well. Some little (short) kids like to play this arrangement standing up instead of sitting on the piano bench. By standing up, it's easy to move from the low hand-position to high hand-position 3 times easily. In this Level 3 "In the Hall of the Mountain King," you'll be playing both melody notes and harmonic notes at the same time. Therefore, it requires more coordination between right and left hands and between different fingers than Level 1 and Level 2 "In the Hall of the Mountain King."
