Yes, the timing is doubled.  I'm predicting your students will have no problem at all with this time signature.  

The harmonies and melody contrive to help elementary players play the whole tune without having to lift their hands.

This melody needs no introduction... it is popular with church-goers and non-church-goers alike. Amazing Grace is one of the most beautiful and uplifting hymns in the western world.

A fairly recent movie, "Amazing Grace," tells the almost unknown story of how one Englishman, William Wilberforce, forced Parliament and the whole British nation to really SEE the horror of the slave trade.

Until Wilberforce, slavery had been common at all times, in all places, and in all cultures.

And here's the solo for beginners, or piano primo if you make a duet out of this piece. Again, I have doubled the timing for young students so they don't have to count eighth notes:

Below is Amazing Grace with notes made easy to read, for reluctant note readers.  All those skips are a bit discouraging for new students:

You can treat this music like note-naming worksheets.

Look down the page for a piano secondo to play with the melody above...  This secondo uses single bass notes in the left hand and broken chords and chord inversions in the right hand. 

But you can help your student MAKE THEIR OWN SECONDO PART, just looking at the chord symbols on the Primo part, and counting to 6! 

They are surely familiar with the 4 beats that each whole note requires, the 2 beats of each half note, and the 1 beat for quarter notes.  

So they can play solid chords and HOLD them for the required number of counts, or play broken chords.  

As with Greensleeves, playing Left Hand-Right Hand broken chords, fingers 5-3-1, 1-3-5, works out perfectly for Amazing Grace, and is beautiful as well!  Win-win!

Otherwise, you can play as written below (this is a difficult arrangement - not a beginner's arrangement!):

(Yes, it is written in 3/4 time, and the primo is written in 6/4 time, but this hasn't been a problem for my students... a kid who is advanced enough to play this part is reading 8th notes, while the beginner on the Primo won't be counting them for some time...) 

For the most part, the hands "take turns," rendering this secondo duet part easier to play than it looks.

As is the case with most Middle C position songs, have the top part go up an octave higher to accommodate the Secondo.

The only tricky spot in the secondo comes in the last two measures, where students (with your help) will have to devise a fingering that will work for them.

I have intentionally not put fingering in, because students with smaller hands might prefer to cross over, while those with larger hands will probably want to replace fingers and stretch down to the "e" on beat 1 of the last measure.

The words "how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me," can touch all hearts in times of despair or in times of gratefulness. It tells the message of God's grace freely extended to all.

The man who penned the words, John Newton, had been an Atlantic Sea slave trader, and knew that he was indeed the worst of wretches!

Bagpipes... perhaps the most inspiring way to hear Amazing Grace:
