All My Trials piano music

All My Trials

A nice arrangement of this old blues song.

From a guest contributor, Doug Hanvey.

America (My Country 'Tis of Thee)

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

Piano song 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 Prelude in C sheet music

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.

The Beatitudes sheet music

The Beatitudes, Matthew 5:3-12

This lead sheet is a good way for early pianists to learn this song, as the piano arrangement of the Beatitudes song is challenging!

These are the beautiful words of Jesus, when he says, "Blessed are they which hunger and thirst, for they shall be filled."

This is a long song! 

But it is just what some kids like.

Lots of good left hand chord practice!

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.

Sheet music for Chopsticks piano solo

Chopsticks music solo

This song earns a place on this past-beginner-stage page, because using a G7 chord in the "oom-pah-pah" left hand pattern is pretty hard!

It is a big stretch for small hands, and putting this piece hands together is something of a small feat.

Piano sheet music for "Come Ye Sinners"

Come Ye Sinners, one of the old gospel hymns

This pretty tune has several different sets of lyrics.

You may recognize it from movies set in olden days.

Cowboy's Lament music

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

A favorite cowboy song of mine, with a great bass patterns that sounds like a horse loping along.

This is an arrangement of a classical piece.

Down to the River to Pray song

Down to the River to Pray sheet music

A satisfying piece of music, fun & easy to sing, with many verses!

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 music

Funeral March, Chopin's scary Halloween music!

This ominous melody with the somber chords is very spooky...

So much easier to read.

Two pages - this is just part one of Fur Elise.

German Dance music

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!

Golden Wedding

Adding the left hand to this melody makes an easy tune very tricky - but the chords are predictable, and beautiful!

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

Even your thoroughly modern students will tell you they think they have heard this before... somewhere.

Irish Washerwoman

Using open chords, this traditional melody has a fun, swingy feeling!

There's something irresistible about this little tune...
