Piano scores for beginners
On this page you will find some very easy piano scores for the piano beginner. I have placed the compositions in progressive order and you can use them to practice you sight reading skills or as a complement to your piano method book. As a teacher please feel free to print out the scores to check up your students ability to understand and play the basic music symbols or for other purposes!
In order to learn to read piano scores I recommend that you learn to use and get acquainted with right and left hand fingerings. The melodies that you will find on this page are easy to find if you prepare to play by placing your fingers on the keys so that you can look at the sheet music and play without looking at the keys.
For example, in the melody Ezine you are using the notes C, D and E. By placing your right hand thumb on the key C, your index on D and your middle finger on E you are prepared to look at the notes and let your fingers do the job to find the notes! The same principle is of course applicable for your left hand notes C, B and A!

Remember, as a piano beginner you can perform for your friends and feel the pleasure of being prepared to play melodies you can be confident that you play at the best of your ability. Just choose a melody you know you have a chance to learn well and then learn to play that piece by heart by practicing small segments at a time. Take time to also practice as if you actually performed, that is, when you make a mistake just move on without slowing down and with a smile!
This piano lesson book introduces all the notes of the grand staff, elementary chord playing, and the concept of tonic and dominant notes. Students play in varied positions, reinforcing reading skills and recognizing intervals through the 5th. Musicianship is built with the introduction of legato and staccato touches. This level continues the interval orientation to reading across the full range of the Grand Staff. The 5-finger approach is presented here in a fresh, musically appealing way.
