Grade 2 – In Rank and File Piano Sheet Music Grade 2 means that the song is appropriate for students at Grade Two level. The Grade number is a method of assessing learning difficulty or how hard it would be to learn something. Grade One piano sheet music will generally be easier than Grade 5, because Grade 1 is an introductory level, whereas Grade 5 tends to be for experienced and advanced players.
Teachers can expect Grade 2 piano sheet music to use notes near the start of the keyboard, with large spaces between each note. Some Grade 2 songs might overlap into Grade 1 territory, but students will certainly find them doable at Grade 2 level. The range (distance from the lowest note to the highest) might also be smaller, as Grade 2 songs will play within approximately four octaves. A piano keyboard has eight octaves, so Grade 1 songs will typically use more than four of them.
