About This Level

In Level 15, we’ll learn the last of the minor scales. Congratulations- you’ve now learned to play every single major and minor scale! In addition, we’ll learn to play octaves at the piano, which can really help with big, powerful playing.

There are many wonderful piano tutorials in this level, including famous pieces by Frédéric Chopin like the “Raindrop Prelude,” and Debussy’s “Clair de Lune”, undoubtedly one of the most famous piano pieces of all time. We’ve also transcribed Pachelbel’s “Canon in D,” a piece which is not originally for piano, so you can play it as well. You’ll also find some great popular pieces here, ranging from Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” to Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved,” Yiruma’s “River Flows in You,” and Lady Gaga’s “Shallow.” Master these songs and you’ll be the life of every party!
