I like to use this kind of "note-reader" level song as a written homework assignment for my beginner students.  Their job is to write in the names next to each note.

A bonus with this kind of "homework assignment" is that they get to CHOOSE from several songs which one they want, and they usually end up PLAYING it, even if I have not asked them to do so!

This beautiful old song with its lovely verses became a pop hit many years ago when Cat Stevens recorded it.

Here is an audio of the piece on Teaser & The Firecat.  In the video below is Cat Stevens himself in 1976 on tour; this was shortly before he decided to adopt Islam and change his name to Yusuf Islam: 


Morning Has Broken lead sheet

I have been giving my students lead sheets every few weeks, allowing them to choose what they like, and adding their own chord stylings to them.

It's amazing what they like to play when given a choice!

Morning Has Broken appeals to the kids who like "pretty" music, and who like to sing along as they play.

For very young beginners, here is an easy-to-read version with lettered notes:

Here is Rick Wakeman at the piano (Rick arranged the original piano accompaniment for Cat Stevens' version, which has become the trademark sound of Morning Has Broken):
