Classical Piano Sheet Music

Classical Piano Sheet Music

Classical piano music can be divided into three main eras;

  • The Baroque Period (1600-1750)
  • The Classical Period (1750-1820)
  • The Romantic Period (1820-1910)

Music after that is usually called "20th and 21st century music", and even "Modern". Who knows what these periods will be called in the future?

The pieces in the collection are simplified and for beginners. The layout is clean and easy to read and the selection of timeless masterpieces is great!

Graded Levels

The piano pieces are graded from level 1-6 and organized in the different periods/ styles. The pieces have been selected as some of the easiest, pedagogically sound, and most popular classical piano sheet music by each composer.

The levels are an indication of difficulty and are based on mainstream exam levels- but don’t feel afraid of testing something a bit above your own level- this might actually help you to pull yourself to a higher level!

If you really love a piece- there is magic in what you can do! I have seen that over and over again…

Just don’t go overboard in difficulty- and keep working with your piano lesson book as well as note reading and technique at the same time.

An Explanation of the different Levels:

Please observe that Level 1 is not for absolute beginners. This level is usually reached after about one year of piano playing. (If you can play these pieces easily after learning piano less time than that, it means you can feel really good about yourself : )

  • Level 1: Early Elementary Level.
  • Level 2: Elementary Level.
  • Level 3: Late Elementary Level.
  • Level 4: Early Intermediate Level.
  • Level 5: Intermediate Level.
  • Level 6: Late Intermediate Level.
