Easy Piano Sheet Music
Swan Lake (Het Zwanenmeer)

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

Here is an arrangement of a classical piece from the ballet repertoire of Tchaikovsky, sent to me by Tabitha S. Kierszka. She 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.   The theme from Swan Lake is featured in the video below:

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 for Swan Lake: unlike Tabitha, I didn't add any dynamic markings.  But this arrangement differs by using just a touch of harmony:

I hope your students enjoy these two versions of Swan Lake!
