Greensleeves Piano  Music for Young Students

Greensleeves piano music with flowing chords is beautiful and attainable for your very young and new students, if treated as a DUET

As soon as they can play broken chords with each hand, give them this lovely duet to inspire them to improve their facility.

This Greensleeves / What Child is This sheet is actually the very same music that is on my Greensleeves FREE sheet music page, but here I have stacked the parts so that it is easier to see when to enter.  There are 3 arrangements here, four pages each.  These PDFs come as a set of 12 pages, and they are FOR SALE.  The 3-arrangement set includes:

  • One that uses all Alphanote lettering - music notes with letters.
  • One that has a FEW helper notes.
  • One that has NO alphanotes at all, but does have chord symbols, and expands the melody part and adds additional chords in the bass so that a full, rich sound is achieved.  Take a look:

One reason I wrote these duet-parts-all-on-one-page arrangements is because I have heard other pianists struggle with my Greensleeves free sheet music, trying to put the parts together. 

Separately, they are easy.  But coordinating the parts can be hard.

Because of the way I wrote the chords, with each hand having three notes, it is easier to read as 6/8 time.  

However, the MELODY is easier to read as 3/4 time!  I have heard people - kids and adults too! -  get stuck into an almost syncopated sound on the melody, holding the half note for an extra beat (in 6/8 rhythm).

If it seems too tedious to count 6 beats, try counting 1-&-2-&-3-& instead.  The melody goes "THREE (and)  ONE (and two and) THREE (and)   ONE(and two) AND THREE (and)" etc., with the capital letter words being the struck notes, and the words in parantheses being the non-moving beats.  

The ERROR that I have heard melody players perform, on the other hand, sounds like "THREE (and)  ONE (and two and three) AND ONE (and two and) THREE AND", etc., or along those lines, anyway!  It's not accurate, it's not as pretty, and I would imagine that it isn't as satisfying for the players.
