Level 1 Royal Conservatory of Music: YouTube videos for Lists A, B, C and Studies

These YouTube Playlists correspond with the pieces printed in The Royal Conservatory of Music’s Celebration Series Sixth Edition, Level 1.

RCM Level 1 consists of two volumes.

The Piano Repertoire book contains three lists of music:

  • List A has Baroque and Classical Repertoire.
  • List B, Romantic, 20th-, and 21st-century Repertoire. Teachers have the option of substituting a ‘Teacher’s Choice’ selection for List B.
  • List C has two-part Inventions.

The Etudes book contains 19 pieces (many of them one page) that address technical development in a fun way for this Late Elementary level.

Helpful hints:

To make it easy to listen through the volumes, these playlists are presented in the order that the music is printed in the books.

However, if you’d prefer to listen to just one title, click on the link or image given in each section. This will take you to the playlist in YouTube, where you will be able to listen to just one video.

Teacher’s Choice Playlist

For RCM Level 1 List B, students may play a teacher’s choice selection without submitting a form or request! Here’s a webinar conducted by the RCM on how!

Consider choosing Late Elementary, Level 1 music by Rebekah Maxner. From action pieces to character pieces, from spirited to expressive, the music in this YouTube playlist can be learned for recitals, music festival classes and for exams as teacher’s choice selections.

This music is available in print and eBooks and as studio-licensed eSheets.

Late Elementary piano students imagine themselves playing big sounds! For your early-level students you want pieces that give the thrill of playing great music yet teach fundamental skills…and music that can please audiences for performances. I aspire to create music that fulfills student wishes and teachers’ requirements. This post comes with a free printable to help make it easy for you to select the very best pieces for your students at the right levels. Keep reading >>

Level 1 List C

Each piece in Level 1 List C is an Invention. In piano music, an Invention is a short musical composition in which both hands play in a style of imitation, or copying. One hand may sound like a copycat, for example. It sounds like a conversation between two equal voices. When the hands trade musical ideas back and forth and have equal roles, it is known as imitative counterpoint.

Level 1 Etudes / Studies

Etudes are a mix between technical exercises (like scales) and longer pieces. Each etude is based on one piano skill and helps you learn it in a short and often really fun piece.

Feedback

Because I’m using content developed by others, occasionally it will get deleted by the original creator. It will be impossible for me to keep track of it all, so if you notice that a piece has suddenly gone missing from a playlist, please contact me! I’ll find a replacement lickety-split!

Video of the Week

Kaleidoscope Dream (Late Elementary, Level 1). Here’s a piece that reflects the beauty and mesmerizing slow cascade of colours in a kaleidoscope as you turn it towards the light! Explores rolling eighths and dotted-quarters in 6/8 meter and is a gentle first experience with this time signature. Available as the studio-licensed Kaleidoscope Dream eSheet!
