Here is the next arrangement, which could also function as a DUET between two young players. It has the sound of raindrops...
This piece would work for a student with one hand.
Notice that the fingering in the arrangement above assumes that it is a solo, with the student using left hand on the melody.
Not so easy, at least at first! If two students play it, then the student on the bottom will probably want to use their right hand, necessitating crossing out the fingering shown.
This simple melody could be played with just five notes, but it loses some of its charm.
Therefore, your beginner may just have to use the thumb twice on two different notes, or in the next arrangement, the pinky finger. Other possibilities exist, of course, but I'm betting your students work it out themselves...
This is a sweet little tune - I hope you and your students enjoy playing these arrangements!

This is the perfect easy start for little pianists.
And when they start reading white-key notes on the staff, this is a fun easy resource to say each week, "Choose a new black-key song at home this week and figure it out to show me next lesson!" They will be spending more time at the piano.
A perfect read aloud storybook
for little boys or girls.
The Adventures of Tonsta highlight the travels of a very young boy with a good heart, who goes about helping folk in trouble.
With a red cap on his head and a sack of tools slung over his shoulder, Tonsta seems to meet people in distress wherever he goes.
Lots of trolls in this book - including one who gives him a Christmas gift!

Hi, I'm Dana! (Say that like "Anna".) I'm the owner of Music-for-Music-Teachers.com, and a newer site, SingTheBibleStory.com.
Like some of you, I've been playing the piano since early childhood, and have added a few other instruments along the way, plus an interest in arranging and composing music.
