Free Beginner Piano Sheet Music
Bohemian Lullaby

Free beginner piano sheet music "Bohemian Lullaby" is a pretty minor piece for students just beyond Primer level.  


Tabitha S. Kierszka in the Netherlands arranged this piece, and has this to say about it: 

"This piece is very simple but has scope for musical and expressive playing. The left hand has to move only in the last line." 

This song is trickier than its few notes might lead you to suppose.  First, it is all skips.  Not just 3rds, but 4ths as well.  Those are going to be harder for your beginners just at first.  A well-placed finger number on the "A" will help very much.  Here is Bohemian Lullaby:

One of the things I particularly like about this arrangement is that the hands "take turns" playing until the ends of the last two lines. 

Can your students spot the chords hiding in this music?  First, a D minor chord inversion begins the song.  Later on, the left hand executes the shape of an F chord (though I would probably call it a "hidden" chord, as D minor is still the effect that the combined RH and LH notes make.

This encourages a student to make great strides the very first lesson spent with it, and then there is really only one challenge remaining -- the LH move and chords to do hands together. (The sharped note in the left hand can seem scary enough all by itself!) Picking up and moving the left hand, and conquering the last 2 chords in this free kids sheet music are the most difficult challenges beginners face in "Bohemian Lullaby."

When a piece is as short as this, I almost always have students play it twice through (in performances), perhaps taking it an octave higher the second time.  At a recital in particular, it gives the audience a chance to relax into the song.  I might also save the left hand chords, with their air of finality, for the last time through.

Thank you, Tabitha, for arranging and making available this piece for beginning piano players!
