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 just called 20th and 21st-century music, and even Modern. Who knows what these music periods will be named in the future? 

TIP: If you're looking for a collection of Classical piano sheet music for beginners, I can recommend: Big Book of Beginner's Piano Classics: 83 Favorite Pieces in Easy Piano Arrangements. The pieces in the collection are simplified and for beginners. The layout is clean, easy to read, and the selection of timeless masterpieces is great!

Graded Levels of Classical Piano Sheet Music

Mozart and family

The pieces (a medium-difficulty piano sheet music) are graded from levels 1-6 and organized in different periods/ styles. The pieces have been selected as some of the easiest, pedagogically sound, and popular organized 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 of the free, easy classical piano sheet music 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 in less time than that, it means you can feel really good about yourself! Level 4/5/6 consists of free intermediate piano sheet music.

  • 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.
