Beginner piano sheet music should be easy to read, and this piece definitely is, moving only by step, from easily-recognized Middle C to its neighbors!
As soon as they've learned staccato, give your young students this music about pecking chickens. Reading is very simple, with lots of repetition, so students can concentrate on their new staccato skill as they read about chickens looking for their breakfast on the ground.
Fingering is not the most important element in this song. I would even allow a student to play this melody, initially, with fingers in a "donut" shape, as in the song "Dipping Donuts." After a week or two, though, I'd like them to try this song with conventional fingering.
This piano music for beginners is fun to sightread in a partner lesson, with students' hands butting right up against each other at Middle C. Or be your student's duet "partner" yourself, first one hand, then the other.
Easy piano songs such as this one are a low-stress way for students to practice new things... Staccato is such a fun skill to learn, and this free beginner piano sheet music makes it easy. Have fun!
Do you have a funny story about this music, or does it remind you of something you'd like to share with other readers? Do you have a question? I'd love to hear it!
