by David Pennant

This music book contains a series of thirty short pieces for beginner pianists. I have tried to make them fun to play as well as easy. The pieces get harder as you go through the book, moving from beginner to grade four.The sheet music costs 5 plus postage available from Particular Music, or from me.

Easy peasy Pieces to Play Together

Most music for solo instruments need a skilled pianist to accompany, so I thought, why not write some pieces to play together, with the piano part easy to play? If you learn all the pieces in the book above, you will be ready to tackle these accompaniments. Here are some for you to try with your friends. Piano parts will fit on a 61 note keyboard. Click on or for a sound file of the piece being played by my pc.

NB. Remember that the solo instrument sets the pace, not the pianist!
