3. Prelude in C major, BWV 846

by Johann Sebastian Bach

from the “Well-Tempered Clavier”

Back then, Bach had written a prelude and a fugue for each of the 24 keys, with the level of difficulty covering a wide range. Certain pieces from the Well- Tempered Clavier are virtually unplayable and others – like the Prelude in C major – are perfect for beginners.

4. For Elise

by Ludwig van Beethoven

To this day it is not known who Elise was back then , but everyone knows the play. However, I would recommend a beginner only the first page up to the repeat sign, because the second part is technically more demanding.

5. The Sound of Silence

by Simon and Garfunkel

We know this 60s hit (with a remarkable history, by the way, see here ) primarily as a two-part folk song with guitar accompaniment, but it also sounds wonderful on the piano. The arrangement presented here is particularly interesting because the vocal melody is played with the left hand and the imitation of the guitar accompaniment with the right.

6. Blue Moon

by Richard Rodgers

Jazz Standard

arranged by Robert Schultz

This song is well known in both the jazz and pop scenes and embodies the classic swing feeling that can usually only be reproduced on the piano with some practice. However, this very easy arrangement also sounds at least as swingy, and the melody will still be whistled hours later.

7. Amazing Grace

Origin unknown

19th century

hymn arranged by Julie A. Lind

Amazing Grace could be the most popular hymn . Even people who don’t have much to do with the church (including myself) admit: “It’s something”. And the arrangement for beginners is very rich in sound and practice material for the left and right hand.

Finds (style blossoms) for piano solo by C. René Hirschfeld

The finds are 10 miniatures in the form of distinctive, sometimes cheerful character pieces. This almost forgotten genre is used here at the same time as a stylistic exercise for young pianists, students or advanced amateur musicians, and so the pieces are deliberately very heterogeneous in structure, sound style and character, while not being too difficult technically.

Today’s musicians, be they professional or not (yet), encounter an unprecedented breadth of styles and tonal languages. With the “Fundstücken” the learning pianist has the opportunity in 10 varied pieces to train differentiated touch technique, different timbres, characters and styles without getting the feeling of technically dry “etudes”:

From 12-note “gimmicks” to sound studies, percussive elements and a piece in mobile form to tonal pieces and even a blues,beginner piano books for adults free & children (PDF, free) this pool of “blossoming styles” ranges, which as individual pieces of manageable length also allow the challenge of unknown playing styles to be mastered.

The pieces are intended as a cycle and should definitely be interpreted with a wink (because the author is of the opinion that today’s music can also be cheerful). Since they are structurally self-sufficient, they can also be performed individually or in smaller groups. The titles are each assigned as a cheerful, linguistically playful reference to character or form. The finds were made in spring 2014.
