Piano Duet Sheetmusic

Piano duet sheet music for students of every level; classical, folk tunes, Christmas duets, and a bit of original music as well!  All free for your piano students.



Amazing Grace


This well-beloved hymn works well as a duet; see the page for a secondo part as well.


British Grenadiers


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.


Coventry Carol


This beautiful Christmas song tells a sad but true story, fulfilling a prophecy from long ago


Garry Owen


This piece is very energetic and fun!  Don't let your beginners miss out on Garry Owen.


Golden Wedding


Okay, this is actually a TRIO, not a duet.  Here is Part 1, using fancy fingering.  I do have a duet, which splits this part into two hands, but I haven't got it up on the website yet.


Greensleeves


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.


Happy Birthday


Several arrangements of Happy Birthday are on this page.


Hungarian Dance


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.


Minka


A famous Russian - or Ukrainian - folk song, this has lots of energy.  It is fun to play it faster and FASTER.


Spanish Ladies


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.


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.


Wabash Cannonball


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


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.





The Adventures of Tonsta, Volume 1, is a book about a young boy travelling over mountains and fjords from village to village, encountering trolls and helping folk in distress.

The Adventures of Tonsta

A perfect read aloud storybook
for little boys or girls. 

The Adventures of Tonsta highlight the travels of a very young boy with a good heart, who goes about helping folk in trouble.  

With a red cap on his head and a sack of tools slung over his shoulder, Tonsta seems to meet people in distress wherever he goes.

Lots of trolls in this book.
