Keyboard Music Notes
Pizza Please

Keyboard music notes for beginning piano music readers "Pizza Please" (formerly known as "Hot Cross Buns"!)  This familiar song uses just 3 different notes, and easy-to-count half notes for the start of the melody.



What I like about this piece are the easy notes, the easy counting, and the silly words.  The phrase "Pep-per-o-ni, cheese, an-cho-vie!" encourages hurrying along the quarter notes.

When I count this song aloud with students, I say,

"One - two, one - two, one - two - three - four.  
One - two, one - two, one - two - three - four.  
One, one, one, one,
One, one, one, one,
One - two, one - two, one - two - three - four."

The arrangement below has just a few made-easy notes:

I've also written this little song for left hand, using the important notes B ("Baby note B"), A, and G:

Why do I call "B" the Baby note?  Well, when my students and I draw the grand staff on my big white board, we focus on the notes around Middle C.  Under Middle C is B, which is "resting" on the top of the staff, as it is a baby, and not very strong.  And D above Middle C stands for the Daddy note - so STRONG that he can hold up the whole "ladder" - that is, the staff - on his head.  Then we draw little faces inside the B and D.

As memory aids, these goofy names have worked well for me!
