Below is printable sheet music for Beethoven’s Für Elise (the entire piece), which I’ve marked up for you, to include each note’s letter name (E, A, B, D#, etc.) . I’ve used this mark-up method with many of my early piano students, allowing them to start playing great sounding pieces that are well beyond their current reading level.
This approach is best for people with a general idea of how piano notation works, but who are weak on associating all those lines and spaces with the keys on the piano, or maybe not too keen on interpreting key signatures.
I left out various markings such as dynamics, crescendos, phrase markings, and pedal markings. This is so the inexperienced music reader can focus strictly on the keys to be played. The WAY they are played, and the RHYTHM in which they are played, can be gathered by listening to a good recording of Fur Elise, and/or by looking at the standard notation.
I guess it almost goes without saying, the ideal way for an early/intermediate piano student to learn this piece is with a professional piano teacher. Regrettably, not all people have that luxury!
