For a pianist, this pretty song makes good basic piano chords practice.  

The melody requires some shifting or lifting of the hand, but it doesn't take long to master, and then you can direct students' attention to inventing a pattern for the chords.  

Check out my free lead sheets page for ideas on making chords work for you.  It is true that 3/4 timing is frequently a challenge for young students, and even more so when they are pianists, adding chords and trying to keep the coordination of their hands going.

Frozen sheet music

Donna:
Thank you for providing this website of piano music. 

I am a retired music educator.  My 90-year old mom wants to play the piano again!  Her age and eye sight have robbed her of her technique, but not her love of music.  She often says about herself:  “the old grey mare just ain’t what she used to be.”  But deep down, the old grey mare is still kicking around and enjoying life. 

I can't wait to try some of the beginner music with her.  I am so grateful for your well-organized resource.  Thank you!  It is remarkable what a difference music can make in a person’s life.  It brings great joy to my mom.
