All the Pretty Little Horses
Now with a secondo part that matches the doubled timing of this primo.
This is a PERFECT duet for a beginner, with three repeating phrases and an easy step-wise melody.
Alphanotes in this arrangement, but there are others without the lettered notes!
This well-beloved hymn works well as a duet; see the page for a secondo part as well.
This martial but cheery-sounding piece has lots of energy!
Full score, or as separate primo & secondo.
Burleske, by Leopold Mozart
Go here to find a one-page version, or with primo and secondo on separate pages.
Canon in D (in the key of C)
Go to this page to see several arrangements of Pachelbel's Canon (super easy!) plus a secondo part.
This beautiful Christmas song tells a sad but true story, fulfilling a prophecy from long ago
This piece is very energetic and fun!
Don't let your beginners miss out on Garry Owen.
Okay, this one is actually a TRIO, not a duet. Here is Part 1, using fancy fingering.
But you will also find a duet version and a solo arrangement on this page!G
Also known as the Christmas song "What Child is This," Greensleeves is one of the loveliest melodies of all time.
Greensleeves with expanded accompaniment & lettered notes
This is page 3 of a 4-page arrangement; this shows the combined primo/secondo that I play along while my students play the broken chords of Greensleeves.
Several arrangements of Happy Birthday are on this page.
A conductor's score approach for this great dance by Brahms.
I'm a Pirate
This song about pirates is 2 pages long, with lyrics that may seem obvious but are little-boy approved!
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.
Little Man Who Wasn't There
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.
It is fun to play it faster and FASTER.
This great song of the sea comes in Cm (shown) and also in D minor.
The secondo is full of big chords.
More arrangements, for solo piano and for guitar, are also available on the Spanish Ladies page.
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.
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
This song is not in Middle C position, but I've made it easier to read by pointing left hand note stems DOWN and right hand stems UP.
There is a secondo as well, with an OOM-pah-pah sound that makes it swing!
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!
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.
Really fun lyrics, and a secondo that uses energetic boogie chords, sets this song about a train apart.
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.
