Easy Piano Sheet Music
Swan Lake 

Easy piano sheet music Swan Lake for little ballerinas, or any child who loves the mysterious sound of the minor scale. 

I have here two NEW arrangements: 

  • an early intermediate version with broken chords and some inversions, and
  • a duet secondo part to go with the easy arrangement for beginners.

The theme from Swan Lake is featured in the video below:

Here is page two of the new solo arrangement:

Here is a close-up look at page one, the beginning:

Here is the bottom of the page, where the theme changes, and the chord progressions move more quickly:

Here is a beginner's arrangement of this classical piece from the ballet repertoire of Tchaikovsky, sent to me by Tabitha S. Kierszka.

Tabitha is a piano teacher, arranger and composer from the Netherlands, where Swan Lake is called "Het Zwanenmeer." This easy arrangement lays nicely in the hands of a beginner.

Though this version of the ballet Swan Lake theme is so simple, the mind of a child can supply all the mystery of the orchestral background as their fingers move over the keys -- especially if you introduce them to it. 

To turn this piece into a duet, try broken Am chords played quickly from left to right and held, followed by an F broken chord, and ending with a deep Am again.

Another beautiful harmonization is the progression Am - Dm - Am - Dm - Am.

When your student plays Swan Lake at home, the ear of the imagination will fill in the missing harmony. (At least I think it will -- I could always hear the missing orchestra in my head as a kid! How about you?) 

Now here is my own easy piano sheet music or duet primo for Swan Lake: unlike Tabitha, I didn't add any dynamic markings.  But this arrangement differs by using just a touch of harmony:

Full of skips (intervals of thirds), but pretty easy!

And here is a duet, with both primo and secondo on the same sheet:

Look at all those rolled chords!  

Actually, just TWO rolled chords, again and again.  The secondo part will require some skill with chord inversions - excellent practice for an intermediate-level older sister or brother, to play along with a younger sibling.

Notice how the rolled chords climb from the bass clef up into the treble clef in measure four, then back to bass clef again:

The secondo looks harder than it really is; the hands are parallel all the way through.

I hope your students enjoy these arrangements of Swan Lake!
