Have you ever had a student who has a particular interest for learning familiar tunes? The internet is becoming a wonderful resource for easy piano arrangements – which you can commonly download and print for free. One site in particular that I have turned to frequently for my students is a site called G Music Theory by Gilbert DeBenedetti. His arrangements were perfect for a student I once had who wanted to be able to play some of her favorite songs. So I assigned a few of these “just for fun” pieces for her to learn on her own. It was a big hit – she loved them.
When you visit his site and click on Free Piano Music, you’ll find that he has a large amount of music sorted by difficulty (from Beginning to Intermediate) – including some duet music. What a great resource for those adults or little ones who want to learn to play their favorite tunes!
Be sure to check out the rest of the site – there are a number of music theory worksheets and other resources available as well.
