Hey there ya’ll!

I sincerely hope you and your piano are getting along well. You two were made for each other!  Relationships take work, never forget that.

This is another post for keyboard players who read music “a little bit,” but who may have trouble remembering all that stuff about key signatures, or sometimes forget which piano key belongs to which line or space on the staff.  Maybe you’re an adult who had lessons years ago, for example.

The sheet music below has each note’s letter name marked in (such as E, F#, Ab, G). There are many situations where this reading aid, the adding of letter-names, can be really useful.  Beware, some teachers get extremely upset  about this kind of alphabetic behavior, declaring it to be pretty much a horrible thing under any circumstances.  I’m not exaggerating.  But I have used this aid in many successful ways, with students who all ended up being good music readers, and  good players.  That said, I guess I also should say:  If you are a formal student of piano, who intends to read music really well, please be careful about decisions regarding the marking in of letter-names,  and maybe just be guided by your teacher, when it comes that.  Myself, when I choose to use this letter-note aid with a private student, the notes have to come from me. That is, they are generally not allowed to mark in any note-names themselves.

Okay, there’s that!

Today’s selection is Beethoven’s famous “Moonlight Sonata,” entire first movement.

Do you read music "a little bit," but have trouble remembering all that stuff about key signatures, and sometimes forget which piano key belongs to which line or space on the staff?  This is quite common, so don't feel bad!

The good news is, when we mark in all the letter names (Eb, C, F#, etc), for every single note on each page, the piece of music suddenly becomes MUCH easier to read!  Be advised, if you don't know how key signatures work, you will probably not be writing in all those sharps and flats where they need to be!

Well, we know how to do all that groovy stuff here at Piano with Kent.  Here's a collection of easy-to-read, easy-to-play sheet music that Kent created a few years ago. More sheets like this are planned, now that we are expanding the site.  Notes are all labeled on the musical staff with their associated letter-names (such as E, Bb, F#), as an aid to reading.

As we mentioned, all of the notes on these sheets are marked with their associated letter names for easy reading  (see the picture above).  In addition, some of these are customized easy arrangements by Kent, some of which are also abridgedClaire de Lune, for example is simplified, and only covers the opening theme.

Here is a list of the pieces (new additions are planned):

Für Elise (main theme, fits on one page)

Moonlight Sonata (entire first movement)

Claire de Lune (intro)

Star Spangled Banner

"Ode to Joy" 

Happy Birthday

Minuet in G (Bach)

Greensleeves / What Child is This
