About This Level

In Level 11, we’ll begin by learning two black-key scales, and also the very important chromatic scale, which includes every single note on the piano. After that, we’ll introduce a new concept of music theory: dominant seventh chords. These chords are extremely common, contain four different notes, and function as a kind of “extension” of the regular major chords.

The repertoire section in this level features a nice combination of pop and classical piano tutorials. You’re now at the level where you can begin tackling more challenging yet rewarding pieces like “Imagine,” “Hallelujah,” “Count on Me,” and “Sound of Silence.” The classical pieces include Bach’s famous “Minuet in G,” as well as pieces by Schumann, Diabelli, and Berens.
