You will enjoy playing this lovely theme from one of Chopin's etudes.
He wrote it in the key of E Major,
but we have simplified for beginning students by transposing it to the key of F Major.
Each B will be played as a B flat and there are a few accidentals.
The notes with a slur between them (the half notes in measures 1 and 2) are "tied notes".
You do not play the second note.
The whole note A in measure 22 is tied into measure 23 and tied again to the eighth note in measure 23.
Do not play either A in measure 23.
Observe the fingering between the staves.
Choose a soothing 4/4 rhythm on your keyboard. Begin slowly
When you can play it well slowly, then try it faster.
