So you got sad and went on Amazon and bought a piano and now you have no idea what to do with it, which is why you’re checking out this list of the 10 easiest popular piano songs for beginners with letters.
Piano playing requires a pretty decent amount of hand-eye coordination, which I often lack, but have managed to get together enough to play piano fairly adequately. Guitar is definitely easier for me, but there’s a lot of pain associated when learning because you have to press the strings down with your fingers. Once you’ve developed callouses it’s fine, but piano playing won’t cause this problem.
One Direction isn’t on this list anywhere, which means I don’t really care about it (except for the one Taylor Swift song). If you’re not easily annoyed by some songs and you just want to play something, you’ll enjoy the recommendations here. Learning to read sheet music is pretty hard if you’ve never seen it before, so adding letters onto the notes and/or your piano keys helps the process tremendously because it becomes less about trying to read obscure symbols and more about matching your fingers to each letter it represents.
In order to create this list, I took a look at some key (I LOVE HUMOR) websites that house sheet music like TakeLessons, Choose Piano Lessons, Mint Music, and Piano Letters. From there, I took the best and easiest. Sometimes the easiest isn’t always the best song in the world, but it’ll do for now until you become a bit more skilled. Let’s say you are a bit of a skilled pianist and want a challenge. This means our list of the 7 Easiest Debussy Preludes and Piano Pieces is probably more your speed.
