Sheet Music for Piano

This is the beautiful Black Beauty movie music, in an intermediate arrangement for piano that your students will love, with its energy and soaring melody.

Black Beauty Theme sheet music for piano

Black Beauty will win your heart

My piano arrangement is available in 2 keys: Am and Bm.  As this music is copyrighted (written by Danny Elfman), it is for sale at  Therefore, I can only show you page one, of three pages, but you can see page two also, at SheetMusicPlus.

Hear the piano audio in Bm:

There is a driving energy in the left hand pattern.  The pattern comes easily - and yet there is the back-and-forth change of just one note inside the octave, starting in measure 7, that bears watching!  See if your students can spot the note.

The same arrangement, in Am:

Follow along as you listen:

Playing in Am with no black keys (except for a few accidentals) is inherently easier than Bm with its recurring F#.  However, Bm seems fresher to many ears, perhaps because students spend so much time playing in the keys of C and Am... no black keys.

This arrangement in Am is also for sale, at  

Why is this music FOR SALE?

Sometimes I have to explain to my students what "copyright" means - that the creator/inventor of a work of art or other product is still alive (perhaps), that this music BELONGS to them, and that this is how they make a living!

I feel lucky to be able to offer this music arrangement, but of each $5.00 sale at SheetMusicPlus, I will only make 50 cents.  Oh well - at least I can now offer this lovely arrangement (in 2 keys) to the world!
