John Thompson's Easiest Piano Course: Easiest Pop Songs

Books | Piano

Publisher: Willis Music
Format: Sheet Music | Songbook

This Easiest Pop Songs edition of John Thompson's Easiest Piano Course allows the beginner pianist, who is progressing from part one to part two of the world-renowned course, to learn some fantastic and well-known pop songs. With simplified arrangements and large notation, these are popular hits in the familiar John Thompson style.

As well as reinforcing basic technique, developing musicality and making learning great fun, the Easiest Pop Songs will be familiar to most young beginners, allowing them to learn and play some of their favourite tunes of the moment. Repertoire books like this have been specially created and graded to be used with the John Thompson's Easiest Piano Course, so pianists who are working through that will recognise the style of this songbook.
This book features a number of pop songs, including Taylor Swift's Shake It Off, Sam Smith's Brilliant Stay With Me and Adele's huge smash-hit Hello. There are many more, though, such as Wings by Birdy, Flashlight by Jessie J and I Really Like You by Carly Rae Jepsen. These Easiest Pop Songs are perfect supplementary material for those working through parts 1 and 2 of the course, but also make great sight-reading practice for more advanced students. Since dynamics and phrasing are not introduced until part 3 of the course, they are not included here, although some invaluable hints and tips and fingering guides are featured for all songs.
All beginner Piano pupils will love to learn the famous pop songs included in this repertoire book - an ideal complement to John Thompson's Easiest Piano Course.

      My 8 year old son absolutely loves this book. The songs sound good and are easy enough for him to just pick it up and play.

      Good selection of up to date songs
      Previous versions of this series the songs became more difficult as the book progressed, not the case here as it stay hands separately the whole way through. Not really suitable for learners at this stage as they are only really learning their notes, rather than learning to play fluently.
