Jane Austen Emma Music

Jane Austen "Emma" music - or at least, a beautiful piano arrangement based on some of the themes from one of the Jane Austen movies, FREE!

This lovely piano piece, Emma, is not actually from any of the Emma movies, but is very reminiscent of one of the Emma themes.  You could call this piece a tribute to the Jane Austen movies, in music.

The video below will let you hear a bit of the Jane Austen Emma movie theme that my daughter Elizabeth used for inspiration in this lovely free piano piece.  It is from the Gwyneth Paltrow 1996 version of Emma:


Girls LOVE music like this!  (And so do their parents.) It has a gentle melody that invites expressive playing by your intermediate students. 

The harp-like repetitive left hand, with just enough breaks out of the pattern, builds a hypnotic feeling and lays a foundation for the simple-sounding but soaring melody.

I have placed fingering in several places, because this piano piece is much easier to play with lots of careful crossing-over, and lifting and finger replacement.  

For those reasons alone, this Jane Austen music will benefit your advancing piano students.

Lots of hands-separate practice will help your younger students achieve a fluid interpretation of this piece more quickly than just plowing through hands together.  

Playing with hands together every time, they are likely to IGNORE the fingering (I know you can hardly believe me!) and stumble around.

One young lady who LOVED this piece but (with my permission) chose it a bit prematurely, perhaps, was greatly aided by my insistence that she memorize the melody right away, with the fingering I selected.  

After that, she played RH against simple LH open chords for a while instead of the broken chords notated in the music.

There are 2 spots in this free piano music where I have placed chord symbols:  

Because the beginning chord pattern goes on and on just the same, it would be very easy to OVERLOOK the subtle chord changes at:

  • measures 10 and 12, and again at 
  • measures 35 and 37.  One tiny note change, from an E to an F#, then back again, is all that happens, but it makes all the difference in the harmony of those measures.

It would be excellent music theory practice to have your students identify all the other chords as well.  See if they can tell you what a "D/A" chord is - for some reason it takes most kids a lot of practice to identify this kind of chord inversion symbol, commonly called a "slash chord."

Your students - and their parents! - will enjoy this beautiful piano music.  My daughter, who arranged it, insisted on having it played at her wedding.
