After Year One
Piano Music Downloads, Free!
These piano music downloads for your young students who are moving from primer music to levels 1 & 2 involve both hands, or add chord symbols for a made-up left hand.
Most of these pieces will fit inside a 5-finger position. Left hand parts are fairly slow-moving, or repetitive. However, new challenges arise - sharps! and flats! Rests, and unexpected rhythms! See examples in the song below, "The Little Man Who Wasn't There."
