Unit B14 – Pedalling

In Stage B, students are introduced to the sustain pedal. Its a good opportunity to look inside the piano and investigate more sounds. By the end of Stage B, students should be able to:

  • find the sustain pedal
  • know what the sustain pedal does (in basic terms, they don’t need to fully understand the mechanics)
  • play pieces where they hold down the sustain pedal for the entire piece.
