Beginner piano solo for all ages. 3 pages including cover sheet.
Beginner piano players of all ages will love the reaction they get when playing this arrangement. It's an impressive-sounding piece that makes beginner students sound more advanced, and audiences love it!
The piece itself is straightforward and fairly simple to learn, and only requires basic reading and note-counting skills.
It's in the key of D minor (like the key of F – all B's are flat) but there are no B's played, so the key signature isn't challenging.
The song includes:
Simple 1/8 notes (easy to count)
Hand positions that start out in D minor with some small changes along the way
Simple hand movement that can be mastered by beginners
Large finger numbers that are clearly marked
A bit of strategically placed staccato for just the right sound
Just a few accidentals (sharps)
- Don't skimp on the counting! Be sure to count out loud using eighth-note counting (1 & 2 &...) as you're beginning the piece. It's worth the patience because it will come out sounding perfect if you follow your practice steps!
- Follow the finger numbers carefully because it will make the song easier to play when you're ready to go fast
Want to sound like a piano hero? Here's the secret in 3 simple practice steps:
1. Practice Slowly
2. Count out Loud
3. Practice hands separate first, then together
Want to learn it quick? The trick is in HOW you practice! Master one line at a time before going on to the next. It feels slower but you'll actually learn it quicker!
