Are you looking for beautiful and easy piano songs for beginners?
You don’t need to play dull or ugly tunes when starting the piano. Or pieces for kids. As an adult, even if you are a parent, you may want to play the music you love, right?
The good news is there are beautiful and easy piano songs for beginners that you can enjoy playing in a few days. I believe that making music is not a dream accessible only to people having practised for ten years or more.
Here are the categories (you can jump directly to the one you want by clicking on it):
You can also use the Table of Content at the top 👆 of this page to see the full list of songs and navigate quickly.
Are you tired of searching for easy piano songs on YouTube or paying for expensive lessons that don’t seem to help you progress?
Imagine being able to play the songs you love with confidence, impressing your friends and family with your newfound skills.
Picture this: you sit at your piano or even at a public piano, and you start to play beautiful songs with confidence.
You feel the admiration of everyone listening to you. You feel the joy of sharing the music you love and see how you make others feel good. It’s like magic!
But right now, you don’t have this confidence. And even by yourself, you are worried about playing the wrong notes. you don’t dare learn more complex songs because of you don’t feel like you play well enough.
I feel you. It is frustrating and sad.
But it’s not your fault. It’s because you didn’t have the right method.
Nothing wrong with you. And I get it, it can be tough to find the right piano method, the one you will actually enjoy using and practising.
Because let’s be honest, it is not always fun to exercise and get to the point you feel your hands free to move and play the right notes at the right time.
I struggled for years before finding the one that worked for me and stopping wasting money on private lessons that I didn’t enjoy.
I’ve left the frustration behind and don’t feel the limitations anymore.
I want you to feel the same.
That’s why I want you to discover the method I personally use to learn the piano 👇
Before you start, two things to have in mind:
- These songs may be altered versions to make them easier to play. I paid attention to finding beautiful arrangements, though. Because you can also find crap versions of them, trust me!
- You can usually find a slower version of them on the same YouTube channel (also a criterion for my choice). I link here to the ’normal’ speed, but you will need to start slowly to learn.
PRO TIP: on YouTube, you can change the speed of the videos, which can be pretty helpful to start learning a new song.
Enjoy now this selection of beautiful and easy piano songs for beginners!
Because it is so cool to play these famous songs and everybody will sing along, being impressed by your talent on the piano!
