Why did you start to learn the Piano? Many people are inspired by seeing an awesome artist perform on this expressive and versatile instrument, or they are desperate to play a particular Piano-based song they love. Whatever the motivation, there's always a bit of a journey from non-musician to virtuoso, and you may not find 'Mary Had A Little Lamb' and other much-loathed beginner tunes the most enthralling pieces to play. Never fear, The Top Ten Pop Songs Every Beginner Pianist Should Learn is here to help, with ten of the very best pop songs of all time, specially selected for beginning pianists.
The songs in this book are both simple to learn and satisfying to play. We've hand-picked both old-school and modern classics from over 50 years of pop greatness, covering a range of styles and artists from Nina Simone to Coldplay and Bill Withers to Adele, So if you want to learn a few tunes to impress your friends or just for the sheer love of it, this little collection will give you just what you are looking for.
The songs in this book are all accompanied by black and white photographs and handy background notes.
