This is the first page only of Fur Elise by Beethoven--but NOT SIMPLIFIED and NOT ARRANGED. 

This is a piano lesson plan HOW TO PLAY the first page of this iconic masterpiece.  I always tell the students that this is the single most famous page of piano music in history!  How could anyone disagree with that?

What's included here is the "prep sheet" that you can use for teaching elementary piano students.
Why? Without doubt, this is the most famous single page of piano music in history.
Every piano student should have the opportunity to play this music, not in a simplified, diluted arrangement,
but rather just as Beethoven intended.
Playing the "real thing" rather than a simplification is a tremendous motivator.
Hand positions and finger numbers are included so that the correct technique is learned.
Without understanding the interaction of LH and RH, this piece is inappropriately difficult.
Understanding how the hands work together in part 4 of the prep sheet actually makes this piece easy to play and memorize.
I hope you have as much fun with this as I have!

Technical solutions (hand positions and finger numbers) are presented here, making this a "how to play" edition for this subline music.
