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."
