Why Don't You Put Names Over the Notes? You should put the notes names above the notes.
Why should we not write the letters in? Some of the time beginners will struggle to play the notes.
Thank you! This site was great it helped me get lots of sheet music for the summer while I'm off of piano lessons :) Thank You soooo much!!!! Thank You for Age-Appropriate Sheetmusic I just wanted to say what a relief it is to find a resource that isn't smothered with baby pictures. My piano student heard me play the first part (of the Pachelbel Canon) and immediately wanted to play it (and it was realistically achievable for her). Free kids' sheet music Star of the County Down beginner piano It looks very simple, but after kids have learned the melody of Star of the County Down, we don't leave it there.
Beginner piano sheet music with chord symbols Then I tell them to play TWO chords per measure.
Then I say, "Okay, now we're going to play chords with both hands--Left, Right, Left, Right." This is REALLY fun. All of these changes are notated for them with only slash marks and the letters "L R L R" for left and right hands. Miggy, United Kingdom:I've just found your website and I think I've died and gone to heaven. Cheri in Vancouver, BC:I was looking for sheet music for She Moves Thru the Fair since I'm beginning both mandolin and uke.
Elania:I have been slowly giving my oldest daughter whatever my memory can dredge up, scouring the internet for free music she can do, but your website with its instructions AND tips on how to teach pieces are going to help me SO much in this endeavor. What's so special about this song?This free easy sheet music uses musical surprise, by way of quarter rests, to emphasize the riddle behind the story of the little bear. What skills does this song call for?This short song seems very easy, and yet it draws on a number of skills young beginning students have been building: coordination of the two hands, staff and note recognition, counting, and using rests. Download "helper" arrangement of beginning song Fuzzy WuzzyLet them figure it out on their ownOnce, I handed out copies of this piece toward the end of a group keyboard class, and announced that anyone who could figure it out and play it correctly without any help from me would get one Jolly Rancher candy.
This is a very popular piece with new students.Indian Dance (composed by yours truly) is one of my beginning piano students' favorite songs to play.

Expect them to forget your instructions!Of course, just because you carefully draw the finger numbers into the keyboard chart and have them locate the hand position on the keyboard doesn't mean they will remember to do this when they get home!
Download printable music for Indian Dance with left hand When is it appropriate to give this piece to beginners?Usually I introduce this piece to slightly older or extra talented children in the first five weeks of lessons.
But some students can grasp these concepts right awayVery occasionally, with an older or very precocious beginner, I will give this piece to a student on his or her second lesson. When to introduce these 2-note songs?These easy little piano songs would be just right after completing Wormies, or to go along with Snakes.
So more reinforcement is neededWhen I saw that he had used the wrong hand at home, I quickly decided it was time to play the "Right-Left" game.

Beginner keyboard music sheets as beautiful as The Water is Wide will win your piano students over with storybook lyrics and a lovely melody.
Students enjoy easy sightreading music, pieces with which they are almost instantly successful, especially when they are as pretty as The Water is Wide. Download The Water is Wide for beginner piano with chordsI encourage students to play chords with both hands, starting simply, with perhaps one chord per measure, then two chords, and eventually (maybe even the first week) broken chords. As I said, not until the melody is well in hand.I've had kids play the chord accompaniment different ways in this piece, but always starting it as a duet with them on the melody and me on the chords -- BIG chords.
Changing chords may be a little slow at first, but this student will have been playing the C, F, and G chords of the 12-Bar-Blues for at least a few weeks or months by now.
I point out to them that they can change from C to G and back to C again without even looking at their hand, if they "sneak" through the g key, using it as a landmark."Close your eyes and try it," I tell them, and now it becomes a challenge.
It began with some local fiddlers playing it at a few recitals about town, then I wrote it up for my pianists in several versions, and now it just won't go away. Now and then a very careful student (generally a teenager) will want me to write out an example of the first few chords, and then they're happy. I wait until they are comfortable and able to keep the tempo up, then I say, "Now I want you to make an introduction for the song! They called their new version of the song, with its new words, Star of the Slippery Dock, and made a video of it. See how many of your students notice the rests, much less count them, the first time through!Notice that there are no unnecessary rests in the graphics of this easy piano music.
It satisfies the need for repetition, and for a loud LH (left hand) part they can really bang on the piano!Just kidding. This piece is not really about reading notes, but about observing patterns, watching finger numbers, counting steadily, and coordinating the hands.Have fun!
The last student I gave "C & B" to played it all week at home with the right hand instead of the left. Here's how it goes:Big movements - a break from finger workWe push away from the piano a few inches so we don't whack our hands on the piano, and I try to fool the students as we each slap our right or left hand while I say, "Right!
Also, IF YOU ARE ASKING FOR MUSIC THAT IS NOT IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN, YOUR REQUEST WILL BE IGNORED. I have been struggling as a music student, not having any previous instruction in high school.


For all the reasons you explain on the site itself--this is exactly what piano teachers need! I have recently started my own vocal studio, and though I have studied music education for years in college, a private studio is a daunting task for me. That way,we can add chords in a few weeks or months when the melody is very strong.With chords, Ode to Joy can be dressed up for a duet, or returned to later when they have gained more skill and their hands are more independent.
It's good for them to feel the majesty of this piece and to learn to feel comfortable with all the sounds happening while they strive to keep the melody going rhythmically. They love a challenge!Then we go through the whole piece, with me on the melody and them on the chords, left handonly, swapping back and forth from C to G to C. Younger kids will plunge right in, although they may also forget how to do it the first week at home!
Although in my opinion they should have spent MUCH more time rehearsing (!!!) they still won first place in their category, and garnered several prizes for their classroom, including $500.00! Kids seem to remember a thing better when they struggle through it themselves.An easy song for quick successI don't spend a lot of time on little pieces like this, but they are fun and quick for students who can read them at once and thereby gauge how much progress they have made since they started, and they are also useful for very young pianists who are still challenged by the location of B and Middle C. I am a piano teacher in New Orleans, LA and in the process of putting together my own curriculum and recordings.
On some of my free sheets, I have written "For Use by Private Music Teachers" down by the Copyright notice, but I really intend them to be for the use of all teachers and students alike. These little songs are perfect right after your student has learned what the staff and Middle C look like.
Then I elevate my two hands to the music, right hand above the left, and say, "Top", indicating treble clef, and "Bottom," indicating the bass clef.A nice quick break in the lessonThis is a fun game to break up a piano lesson any time your young student has been sitting and focusing too long!
Your site has made everything seem so simple and straightforward and has helped me to really get started. This is an important skill to learn, this sense of musical impetus or urgency, and any musician who plays in a group needs to figure out how to make it happen. He memorized it that week and I'm printing off the other Halloween songs to keep him going. That's because "A," the first note, won't show up in their lesson books, usually, for a very long time. It is such a gift, for so many reasons!I have been slowly giving my oldest daughter whatever my memory can dredge up, scouring the internet for free music she can do, but your website with its instructions AND tips on how to teach pieces are going to help me SO much in this endeavor.
I also live in the middle of nowhere so buying from a shop is not really an option unless I fancy a 120 mile round trip for a piece of sheet music! Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge so that music can be shared everywhere.
Every new endeavor requires a little bit of chutzpah -- not to say just brazening it out a bit, because you just can't be an expert at anything until you've done it for a while.
