Scroll this

Want to learn piano but unable to find sheet music for your level? 

It can be hard to play a piece on the piano if you’re a beginner. 

You may want to dive straight into the deep end and start playing your favorite songs, but find the sheet music too difficult. 

This blog is here to help you break out of your complete piano beginner cycle and get you moving and improving on your musical journey. We’ve compiled a list of 9 super-easy versions of popular songs that you’ll be able to play even if you’re a complete beginner!

1) The Sound of Silence by Simon & Garfunkel

Make some noise with this classic hit by Simon & Garfunkel!

There are no sharps or flats to worry about and the majority of the time the left hand is played separate from the right hand.

2) Love Story – Taylor Swift

piano beginner - b flat

Introduction of B flat – you can see that is a flat included as it’s the little b you’ll see in between the clef and the time signature. On the piano it is the black key to the left of the B note.

The majority of the song is just single notes played by both hands so is a good practice for bringing the right and the left hand together. A lot of the notes on the left hand are repetitive whilst the right hand plays the melody.

3) Symphony Number 5 – Beethoven 

In the mood for something classical? Try Beethoven’s 5th Symphony. This is, of course, a simplified and shortened version of the original, so don’t be put off. 

It’s definitely one of the most recognisable pieces of music so you’re bound to receive praise from impressed admirers!

4) Let It Be -The Beatles

Another great addition to the list, you’re certain to impress your friends with this version of “Let It Be”. 
 
The inspiration came to McCartney in a dream he had about his late mother, who reassured him, saying “Just let it be…” She is also cited as the inspiration for the “Mother Mary” lyric.
 
A song that sounds great both on piano and guitar, it’s also easy to play!

5) A Thousand Years – Christina Perri
 
A slightly more challenging addition to the list as it requires more complex finger movements, but definitely worth learning. 
 
We’d recommend this song to players with slightly more experience and confidence with more challenging time and key signatures.

6) Part Of Your World – Alan Menken 

Where would this list be without a bit of Disney magic?
 
You’ll probably have stuck in your head all over again with the upcoming remake of “The Little Mermaid.”

7) Demons – Imagine Dragons 

This song is perfect for the angsty teenagers among you! 

The song doesn’t require much experience as the left hand solely consists of chords. This means you can focus on the more challenging right hand part of the piece. And on conveying the emotion behind the song!

You can download the sheet for Imagine Dragons at Jellynote. 

8) Diamonds (in the sky) – Rihanna 

This shortened and simplified version of Bad Gal Riri’s “Diamonds” will have everyone in your vicinity shouting, “Yas queen!”

A slightly more challenging piece (particularly the right hand), but beginners shouldn’t be afraid!

9) Can’t Stop This Feeling – Justin Timberlake 

Cast your mind back to a time when Justin Timberlake was still relevant with this tune. 

It’s a really simple tune so shouldn’t take you that long to master it! The sheet music also includes lyrics so why not try singing at the same time?
