Furthermore, the melody is strong and singable.

Jolly Old Saint Nicholas

A very easy Christmas carol, with very sweet words.  I loved this song when I was a child.

A jazzy piano duet for beginner plus intermediate piano students

This song is surprisingly fun and satisfying to play, even as a  solo, but it just SNAPS when the duet parts are played together well! 

My students work hard to polish this little piece.

A famous Russian - or Ukrainian - folk song, this has lots of energy.

The secondo is full of big chords.

The Spanish Lady easy piano sheet music

The Spanish Lady 

This is a bouncy, happy-sounding Irish song!  

With a story about a pretty lady with amazing habits ("washing her feet by candlelight"), and a chorus with silly words ("whack fol the toora loora laddy"), this engaging music is fun to play!

The secondo chords are easy, with just enough of a challenge to command careful attention.

An Irish song piano duet, full of fun and energy!  The Star of the County Down.

Star of the County Down

This song may look  odd, since I have doubled the timing (used quarters instead of eighth notes, for example). 

That's to make it easier for beginners to read. 

Don't pass it up on that account - there are other versions on the page, and this song is TOTALLY FUN.  For me, too!  I always love starting another young pianist on this piece.

Take Me Out to the Ballgame

A piano ensemble for a class of keyboard players, Toccata by Monteverdi

Toccata from L'Orfeo

NOT a duet, but a piano ensemble, for a piano class. 

This arrangement sounds very cool with trumpet and other brass sounds for the keyboard selections. 

VERY tricky rhythm patterns, but in a group, getting those rhythms going is part of the fun!

A piano duet that is a pretty waltz by Schubert, Valse Noble.

Valse Noble, Schubert

This piece by Schubert is not easy... but it is utterly charming. 

To play it successfully  one needs mastery of chord inversions. 

Because this is in the key of C, this lovely duet might be doable for students beginning that journey.

Piano duet Wabash Cannonball, full of energy

Wabash Cannonball

Really fun lyrics, and a secondo that uses energetic boogie chords, sets this song about a train apart.

Duet piano music Waltzing Matilda, a pretty song from Australia

Waltzing Matilda

This song from Australia practically sings itself... kids LOVE it. 

The words are a bit whacky to a non-native, but that makes the song even more fun. 

The secondo is very pretty.
