After Year Two -
Free Easy Piano Sheet Music

Free easy piano sheet music for After Year Two of piano, Hava Nagilah

America (My Country 'Tis of Thee)

A fairly easy arrangement of this song, with some parallel motion and some solid and broken chords.


Angel in the Sky

A pretty song with a repeated chord pattern, with lyrics that can be sung.

This song is about missing a friend.


Bach Minuet in G

Three different "arrangements" of the minuet are on this page, including the original!


Bach Prelude in C

This is the real thing; three pages.

Also on this page you will find a four-measure introductory version of this pretty prelude, written with large notes to alleviate the fear of sixteenth notes for newbies!

Gentle-sounding and beautiful, this repetitious piece made of chord inversions is a good choice for a church prelude, or for weddings.


Bingo

This is a long song! 

But it is just what some kids like.


Brian Boru's March, a lovely Irish tune with a vigorous left hand and also broken chords.

Brian Boru's March

This is exciting and vigorous - and beautiful as well!  

Don't miss Brian Boru.


Burleske, or Burlesque, a piano piece by Leopold Mozart, for intermediate students.

Burlesque, by Leopold Mozart

This piece is by Mozart's father.

It is a catchy piece, with a repeating left hand.

The right hand presents much opportunity for finger replacement practice, a necessary skill for pianists!

Your fingering choices may be different than mine, but try them out!


Cat Came Back

This is a very fun song.  

Several versions are on this page, with slight alterations in the melody to make it easier to play for some students.




Cowboy's Lament (I'm Going to Leave Old Texas)


Egyptian Dance

A beautiful, mysterious-sounding piece that sounds much harder than it actually is.

Two times through the melody, with a slight change in the left hand the second time through, makes this a quickly-learned challenge for many students!


Erie Canal

Not hard, but with shifting hand positions.  

This is a 2-page longer version than my other, shorter arrangements.



Funeral March, Chopin


Fur Elise written with quarter notes, in 6/4 time instead of 3/8.  Easy to read for piano beginners.

Fur Elise original (part 1)

This is the real thing, except that I've written it with QUARTER NOTES instead of the usual sixteenths and eighths.

So much easier to read.

Two pages - this is part one of Fur Elise.


German Dance, by Beethoven

An intricate scalar right hand melody with many fingering details.

Fortunately, the left hand is fairly static, but exciting with its big octaves!

The very first line of the melody has a naturally soaring feeling of climax - very fun!


God is So Good

This is the most difficult arrangement of this little song - still pretty easy!



Goober Peas


Happy Birthday

This is what I like to call an "Oom-pah-pah" arrangement!

The left hand chords go "bass, chord, chord" as their pattern.

Find other arrangements at this page, very easy ones among them.


Harp Ballad

An important piece in my studio.

A beautiful melody is juxtaposed with a repeating left hand pattern, which breaks away into long climbing chords in part 2.

The hand coordination practice is invaluable, and marks a milestone for students.


Hava Nagila

A piece with lots of energy and excitement, not to mention hand coordination challenges!

Two pages.



House of the Rising Sun



How Doth the Little Crocodile



Hungarian Dance

Okay; this one is actually a DUET. 

The secondo part is tricky enough to qualify to be in this harder page of music; the primo is for younger players.

This is one of Brahms's most exciting pieces!



Irish Wedding free printable sheet music

This is the most difficult of the several versions that I have on this website.  

Page one, still EASY.

But page two, not shown here, is quite challenging, with octave broken chords in the right hand, and octave jumps in the left hand chords.

VERY FUN!


Kookaburra

A cute song from Australia about a bird whose call sounds like laughter.

This song is also a round.


Lake Pirates - modeled after The Hobbit Soundtrack, Hobbit 3!

This 3-page song is a LOT of FUN to play.

Surprisingly easy - it is set in the key of Cm, with a simple repeating left hand - and only a couple of complicated parts!

A favorite with my students.



Largo from "The New World Symphony"



Lavender's Blue


Louie Louie

I use this set of chords as an exercise, that sounds like real music.

It is ALMOST the same as the real Louie, Louie, with one chord alteration.

Shown here is the second level, employing chord inversions instead of plain root chords only.



Minka



Morning Has Broken



My Country 'Tis of Thee (America)


Pachelbel Canon in D longer



Rain, Rain, Go Away



Red River Valley


Sakura

Very pretty, a Japanese song about cherry blossoms.

Evocative and mood-setting, with opportunities for expression.



Streets of Laredo



Twinkle Twinkle Little Star



Waltzing Matilda



What Will We Do With a Drunken Sailor



Yellow Rose of Texas


Yo Ho Ho

Not really that hard, and a lot of big sound!

Two pages, with some finger-replacement and hand shifting.









The Adventures of Tonsta, Volume 1, is a book about a young boy travelling over mountains and fjords from village to village, encountering trolls and helping folk in distress.

The Adventures of Tonsta

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.

Available at Amazon!
