Valentine's Day Songs
If I Give to You My Heart
Valentine's Day songs for beginner piano students...
Two versions of this free printable song are available to download!
"If I Give to You My Heart" is a gentle, singable little tune.
Here is the song in the key of C with broken chord accompaniment. The left hand has lots of simple chord inversions, good practice for early intermediate pianists. See how many of these chords your student can identify:
Please scroll down the page for the download links.
Here is the VERY simple version for beginners:
If you want to add harmony to turn this into a duet, just use the I, IV, and V chords... in the beginner version, that would be the G, C, and D chords.
For help on how to add chords, go to my page Mary Had a Little Lamb, or Lead Sheets. Both pages discuss adding accompaniment to a melody by understanding what chords to use and how to use them. Have fun!

I love your site! It has been an incredible resource for me as a Music teacher. I love your ideas and the music you share...
What a fabulous website! I've been a keen amateur piano player since I first learnt 56 years ago at the age of 8.
I now have a three year old granddaughter and am hoping fervently that she'll want to learn - at which point I'll teach her. This is just the kind of resource I'll need to make it comprehensible. Thank you very much.
Thanks a lot for building such a nice site where people can easily find and free download sheet music for beginners. I am going to start teaching piano to kids.
I was just searching for some basic interesting songs for my pupil. Here, I found a wonderful site where I spent more than 3 hours and downloaded some music. Thanks again for making my day easier.
Thank you so much for these resources - I have a small music studio in Johannesburg, South Africa.
My kids love playing these tunes.
Thanks for a great web site and a very useful tool for us teaching guitar.
Thank you so much for this site! I have just started teaching some really keen Y6 boys who want to play Scarborough Fair, and your version is perfect. I will now go and look at what other goodies you have!
THIS SITE IS AMAZING!! I've been teaching guitar for about 5 years now, and I've only just found your website! (I could really have used it 5 years ago) :-)
I teach at primary schools every week day for about 4 hours, so the beginner tabs you have are ideal. Thank you so much for your hard work getting these on the web, you have made many children very happy!!
