Halloween Sheet Music for Piano

Halloween sheet music for piano, for very beginner to late intermediate.

Some fun, some melancholy, and some positively OMINOUS.   Check them out!

Ominous music for a spooky night

The 5th Symphony, Beethoven's most recognizable theme!

There are three arrangements of this fabulous theme on this page: short, shorter, and very short indeed!

The shortest, for early beginners, has some lettered notes.

Students WANT to play this piece.


De Boself - an arrangement of a charming, famous piece from the Netherlands about a "kobold" - a mischievous creature


Double, Double, Toil & Trouble - part of a set of Halloween songs for piano

Yes, Shakespeare's witches' poem from "Macbeth" is the foundation of the lyrics of this energetic song!

Very singable.


Funeral March by Frederic Chopin - perhaps the most recognizable theme ever written by "the Poet of the Piano"


Halloween Songs 

This page shows a collection of eight little songs for young beginners, with lyrics that (for the most part) won't offend parents!

From creepy to cheery.

DEATHLESS lyrics, with names like Black Cat, Candy Night, Cats at Night, Did I See a Witch Last Night,  Ghosts & Goblins in the Sky,  See the Pumpkins, and There's a Dark House Down the Road


Halloween Songs for Piano, Elementary and Intermediate - a set of original pieces, all with lyrics to sing or jump-start the imagination on a still night. From zombies, to haunted forests, to maidens with a curse upon them.


Have You Seen the Ghost of John 

A very beautiful old and favorite vocal round.

Lead sheets and one arrangement with letters in the notes.


Stories I Don't Believe, part of the Halloween songs for piano set - lyrics that may make you shiver, and will certainly make you remember how it feels to be a child peering into a dark forest!


Toccata in Dm by J.S. Bach 

Two versions, for beginners to late elementary.

This is perhaps the most dramatic keyboard piece ever written. 


Zombies are Everywhere- an action-packed song!  Play it as a solo or a duet.

Halloween: Let's Celebrate Halloween piano music

Michelle:
Thank you Dana. We are using these songs for our piano recital!!!! They are darling!

Joy:
I bought your Halloween songs, wrote teacher accompaniment for some, and performed with 17 of my students in costume at an assisted living facility. It was a "win-win" situation.

The kids and residents loved it and the parents were very pleased with the service aspect of their children's performance as well. Thank you for sharing these lovely pieces that introduce the minor key in a very simple and interesting way to early elementary students.

Kim in Washington:
My son is hooked...I've been introducing piano to my son on and off for a year or so, but he's not had much interest. Then I gave him "Monsters Everywhere". He loved playing it with the organ sound on our piano. He memorized it that week and I'm printing off the other Halloween songs to keep him going. I love the detailed instructions on teaching since he is my first student! Thanks so much.
Dana:
That is so neat that your son has experienced the magic and mystery of music through this little song. That is so exciting to me! Thanks for writing, Kim!
