Titanic Music -
My Heart Will Go On

"Titanic music" from Titanic the movie, arranged for intermediate piano.

Not too easy, but very lovely!  Though it is full-sounding, it does not stray too far away from the middle of the piano, and fits nicely into the hands with no sudden leaps up or down the piano.

The Titanic music by James Horner is copyrighted, so unlike most of the music on my site, it it not free.  But you can get it at SheetMusicPlus!

Being as this is copyrighted music, I cannot show you all the music!  This is just the top half of page one, out of three pages.

With lots of repetition in the left and right hand chord patterns, there is just enough variation to keep the left and right hand parts fresh-sounding.

There is lots of helpful fingering throughout the piece.

Both left and right hands make use of a stretched broken chord pattern I call the "broken chord stretch."  With my students, we build up from the most basic of chord patterns to harder patterns that require more hand coordination. 

At my "Mary Had a Little Lamb" page, you can see that metamorphosis.

There are lots of sharps in My Heart Will Go On!  If kids haven't yet played in the key of E, they need a bit of preparation, in my opinion.

We start early, by transposing beginner songs (such as Mary Had a Little Lamb, or Snake Charmer, or Twinkle) into all the keys, adding chords.

The Titanic song DOES have lyrics,  (occasionally I've had a young girl sing them as she played the piano notes) but I have not included them in this arrangement. 

If you are listening carefully to the video above, you'll notice that the beginning chord patterns are played again at the end of the song - with just one or two twists.

Arranging this piece was a joint venture between me and one of my sisters.  She has a very keen ear, whereas I have the music software!  

Years ago when she was listening, listening, listening to this lovely song,  her young daughter expressed her weariness, "Mommy, can you PLEEZE stop playing that song???" 

Oh, the hard life of a musician's family!
