Blow, Ye Winds

Blow Ye Winds is an old whaling song with a robust melody.  Get free piano sheet music for beginners, elementary, and intermediate students, plus a piano duet as well!



This is a brand-new piece in my studio - I have yet to see how kids will like it.  The Blow Ye Winds lyrics are fun, and the music is full of energy, and that is generally a good combination.  There were LOTS more verses I could have included, but I chose to stay away from the actual descriptions of butchering the whale (!), and the racier kind of lyrics...

This is the most difficult version of Blow, Ye Winds for the piano:

The following arrangement is ALMOST the same, but a little easier, with less movement (not much).

And now here's a "note-reader" version, with just a few "helper" notes to orient kids.  With a complicated melody like this, I find it can really help a student (who wants the harder version) to start simpler, until they KNOW the way the melody sounds.
