I have a student in My First Piano Adventures who learned the first 8 measures to Ode to Joy and really loved it.

Ode to Joy, now with an arrangement offering a challenging and interesting set of left hand chords for students in their second year! This is one of Beethoven's most recognized and beloved melodies. Download easy piano sheet music for Ode to JoyIt is just possible your student has heard the song sung by a quartet at the end of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. Free Beethoven printable piano music ALMOST easiest version Download piano music with letters Ode to Joy, the EASIEST version (not shown)With only minimal fingering, kids read this song just like "Snakes," except I warn them that there are some skips hiding in some of the measures. This is the kind of accompaniment I might make - FOR ME, THE TEACHER!Then we switch places, and I have them try C and G open chords all the way through, striking the chord on beat 1 only. Do you have a funny story about this music, or does it remind you of something you'd like to share with other readers?


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). Now that he has progressed, he asked to play the rest of the melody, so I wrote it out for him. It is a setting for choir and orchestra of the German poet Schiller's 1785 poem An die Freude . 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. His nine symphones are probably his greatest achievement, each one an unrivalved masterpiece, but he also wrote 5 piano concertos, piano sonatas, string quartets and one opera, Fidelio.
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. We circled the skips and practiced them in the air and on the piano cover. His Mom played the symphony for him and now he is a  5 year old Beethoven fan!
