In Stage C, students:
- begin to move beyond a five finger position up to stretches of one octave in one hand.
- play in 2 fixed five finger positions within a single piece
- play with both hands in the treble clef
- play with both hands in the bass clef
- play chords that have two simple voices in one hand (e.g. a semibreve against two crotchets).
Students should also experience pieces where the hands change clef.
