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.

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!
