This discounted bundle contains the mid-elementary arrangement of Amazing Grace and the early intermediate arrangement of Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee. Both pieces begin quietly and unfold into a big, mature sound.
Leveling of Amazing Grace and Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee / Ode to Joy
Amazing Grace is approximately mid-elementary level. A majority of the notes are quarter and half notes and only the melody (which is familiar to the student, so easy to play) contains eighth notes. The piece moves to different positions on the piano, but is always easy to play. A single pedal throughout the piece makes the piece sound mature. The second verse allows the student to access a fifth in the lower part of the piano, giving the piece a bold and deep, mature sound. This arrangement is very rewarding for beginning students!

Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee / Ode to Joy
Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee is approximately early intermediate level. Eight notes are the smallest note value and syncopated sections are simple and easy to execute. Students move up and down the piano in easy patterns that give a more round and full sound, making them sound more advanced. This arrangement is a modern, melancholy sound that especially the older student (pre-teens, teens, and adults) will enjoy. The keys included in this arrangement include C, D, and G major.
Bonus: For those that use the title Ode to Joy instead of Joyful Joyful
We know that a people know the Beethoven tune by different names. So with this bundle, you get both a version and cover called Ode to Joy and a version and cover with Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee. They are both neatly packaged in the same PDF file.
What is a studio license?
