First year piano sheet music

J-B, 03 October 2017.

When you begin to play the piano, like every other instruments, you're not able to play anything you'd like to play. But cheer up, it can be so much worst with other ones like the oboe, the violin or the trumpet so demanding on so many levels. But, after a first year of learning the piano, they are many possibilities to play nice things and here what this article is all about.

Be patient

The biggest mistake would be to rush to something you want to be. If you put on the piano a sheet music to hard for you, you can expect failure, and failure leads to giving up. That's why I advise you to chose pieces you can play, at the moment. Not that you won't have to work for a week or to, but be careful with the difficulties you won't be able to overcome now.

The methods

When I see something like « X pieces for beginners », I'm suspicious... Very often, the first three pages are allright but the next ones are rapidly way to hard for a first year piano student. Do not buy that kind of stuff if you can't open it first.

Internet is your friend

Nowadays, you can find so many great things on the internet. That's a chance but carefull again. Do you thing you can enter "piano sheet music beginner" on Google on go on with it, you're mistaken. It will be much more difficult, believe me. Many won't be for beginners, many will be so disappointing. So... follow the guide !

Here's a guide to quality resources on the internet :
