Accidentals are used in pieces to introduce new keys, and then key signatures are used. Other new concepts including tonic and dominant seventh chords, crescendo and diminuendo, eighth notes and rests, dotted quarter notes, accents and more. Transposition is introduced at this level and is emphasized throughout the following levels. Level 1 ends with an arrangement of Alouette in G Major, employing the G Major triad, D7 chord (two notes only), and hands in two positions.
