Tips for playing Level 1 "Trepak" from The Nutcraker":
This particular arrangement of "Trepak" is at Level 1 (beginner's level). You can stay in one hand-position for the entire piece. After you download it, please locate the hand-position on the tutorial page. The fingering numbers are provided on all the notes.
