“Sunset” is an elementary level piano piece where the note range does not go beyond the five fingers of each hand. Therefore, it may be easier for the students to place their fingers over the keys and leave them there to the end of the song. The song is in E minor, having one sharp in the key signature.
The students will need to focus on dynamic balancing between the hands since the dynamic levels are different for each hand. At times one hand will be holding down a note while the other hand plays. The rest of the song is played hands separately.
Suggested fingering is included. The song has 24 measures and is in triple meter.
