Halloween sheet music can be really fun for kids. As long as it isn't dark and celebrating dark things, I'm okay with it, as most parents are. This song, Zombies are Everywhere, is all about being careful and watching out! (And if playing a song about ZOMBIES poses a problem for some kids' parents, see the same tune at "Halloween Songs for Piano," where I have used & adapted Shakespeare's words in Macbeth, "Eye of newt, toe of frog..."
I am making a present to you of this fun piece. For a short time, it is free, and then it will become part of a new Halloween collection (for sale) of solos and duets for late beginner to intermediate pianists.
You may have noticed that this piece doesn't come with any Alphanotes, the lettered notes. I figured that a song about zombies would be motivation enough to work at the notes. So far, I have been correct in my assumption.
The melody can stand on its own, but it is full and exciting with this secondo part:
As for these goofy lyrics (I freely admit they are silly), they do not seem so far-fetched after watching the movie "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies." So often, the main characters seemed to disappear into catacomb-like cellars, where there were multiple posts and walls behind which zombies could hide. I kept pleading with Elizabeth Bennett and her sisters NOT TO TURN THEIR BACKS!
Now here is a shortened version of the song for beginners and the faint of heart:
One of my students liked this piece so much she wished to play it at a recital, but her folks didn't want "Zombies" showing up opposite her name on the program. This year, I have alternate lyrics for this fun piece at Halloween Songs for Piano!
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!
