Valentine's Day Songs
"Chocolate Romance" for Beginner and Elementary Piano Students
Valentine's Day songs are welcome once a year, and kids' Valentine poems are especially fun if they are silly and come with a singable tune.
On this page I've got two versions of a free Valentine song.
This song, Chocolate Romance, has two versions: an elementary version with some harmony, and a Middle C version for beginning pianists.
I have added chord symbols to the Middle C version, in case you want to arrange a duet!
Please scroll down the page for the download links.
The singer is saying,
"Choc'lates are great - see how many I ate! Hmmm... Truffles, he loves me, Orange, he loves me not..."
By the end of the song, multiple chocolates wrappers testify to the disappearance of all the candy... but the appearance of a stomach ache!
Here is the Middle C version for beginners:
Please scroll down the page for the download links.
To make an accompaniment for this song, try broken chords (C-E-G, G-B-D, etc.) or even "Oom-pah-pah" chords, which will match nicely with the three beats per measure.
On my pages Mary Had a Little Lamb and also Free Lead Sheets, I have lots of detailed examples of how to turn piano chord symbols into an accompaniment for a melody.
I show you how to start with a triad or even a 2-note chord shape, and gradually make your left hand fancier and fancier.
No pianist should be without this skill!
Enjoy this easy little song for February 14th, about enduring love... for CHOCOLATE.

Carrie,Voice and Piano Teacher:
This site is FABULOUS.
For all the reasons you explain on the site itself--this is exactly what piano teachers need! (I still need to go look at the vocal music). Wow. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
THANK YOU! This website is a God-send! :D I took piano lessons as a kid, a little music theory, and now I'm a homeschooling mom hoping to pass on anything I can to my kids about music. It is such a gift, for so many reasons!
I have been slowly giving my oldest daughter whatever my memory can dredge up, scouring the internet for free music she can do, but your website with its instructions AND tips on how to teach pieces are going to help me SO much in this endeavor. I just wanted to tell you thank you. Really really! THANK YOU!
I wanted to thank you.
Several of the songs on this site work so well for some of my picky students and the ones who don't practice a lot.
Thank you so so much for this site!
I'm teaching my little sister and everything up here is absolutely amazing! I will definitely be making a donation as soon as possible! Thank you again! You're wonderful!
