The First Year:
Free Piano Sheetmusic

Primarily, this page is made up of Middle C music with "shared-between-the-hands" melodies.



Additionally, there are some pieces that make use of left hand chords or very simple accompaniments.  Most of the Middle C melodies have chord suggestions or illustrative graphics for an enterprising accompanist to devise his or her own backup.  A few also have written-out secondo parts, for easy duet playing. (In that case, the melody part usually needs to move up an octave.)
