Free Classical Piano Sheet Music

Here is a collection of classical piano sheet music for you. All is in the public domain, so it is free to print and use all of this classical piano sheet music!

Classical piano music is usually divided into three eras;

  • the Baroque Period (1600-1750),
  • the Classical Period (1750-1820) and
  • the Romantic Period (1820-1910).

Music after that is often called "20th century music", and even "Modern": )

Classical Piano Sheet Music

Because of copyright, beginner piano sheet music is hard to find in the public domain from the 20th and the 21st century. If you know of a gem somewhere, feel free to add a comment in the end of this page!

The piano pieces are graded from level 1-6 and organized in the different periods/ styles. They 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 the RCM 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.
