Groundhog Day Piano Music for Beginners

Groundhog Day piano music for your young students, free download!  This simple little tune tells the story, in brief, of Groundhog's Day.  Two versions here - one for elementary, and one for early notereaders.

This is a very simple, even predictable tune.  I wanted it to be SHORT, yet tell the story, and use repeating patterns.  

Something different I've done with this song in both arrangements is make available a male or a female perspective in line 1 - the groundhog looking out the door is either a "he" or a "she."  Why?  Because I have three daughters, and I weary of the tacit assumption that all animals in stories are de facto male... it's nice to mix it up.

Today, a student and I talked our way through the odd fingering in this piece before touching the piano keys.  She set finger 5 down on the piano lid, then silently scooted finger 4 into that position.  Just miming the action ahead of time made actual execution easy.

Here's the young reader version, with melody for shared hands:

I hope you have a student or two who will find this little song to be just what they need on Groundhog's Day!
