Where to Find Free Sheet Music for Piano Online

Because sheet music plays such a vital role in the piano, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that a number of websites are exclusively devoted to sharing sheet music. And of those many websites, here we list four where you can find quality sheet music:

Minneapolis Public Library

Minneapolis Public Library

1. Minneapolis Public Library: With more than 45,000 titles in its repository, this library website boasts of one of the most extensive music collection in the world. And when it comes to piano, there are more than 33,000 popular sheet music available in piano-vocal, piano solo and choral arrangements. However, a downside to using this vast collection is that a large chunk of it has yet to be catalogued.

Free Piano Music Website

2. Free Piano Music!: Its collection of a little more than 100 pieces of piano music sheets looks paltry compared to the Minneapolis Public Library’s huge database. But it has its advantages too. For instance, this small collection is easy to navigate through and contains pieces from pop, classical, and Christmas styles. The pieces are arranged according to their level of difficulty which moves from beginner to intermediate.

Sheet Music Archive Website

3. The Sheet Music Archive: Here you can find over 100,000 works, most of them in public domain. This collection includes classics from some of the biggest names in piano: Chopin, Mozart, Brahms, Bach and Beethoven. There is a ten-day free trial but after that, you have to pay a subscription fee in order to continue using the service. This is an excellent resource if you are willing to spend a few dollars.

Score Exchange Website

Tips For Memorizing Sheet Music

Sheet Music

Learning music is not an easy task; it requires  wholehearted dedication and hard work.  That said, memorizing Sheet Music is one of the basic steps that helps learn music more effectively and in a proper manner.  It will help you enhance your instrument playing skills as well as  increase your confidence while performing for yourself, friends, or in gatherings.

Here are some fundamental steps to learn and memorize sheet music easily.

Practice and practice: Practicing and practicing more is step one to thoroughly memorizing sheet music. There is no short cut to it, the more you practice, the more you will know your instrument.

Play it alone: After practicing with the sheet try to play the song without it and see how much and how well you can play. This exercise will help you see your real progress.

Remember dynamics, markings used in notes: Make it a rule to remember the signs, dynamics, and marks used during making your music notes; this will help you to retain musical notes easily.

Use same fingering every time: While playing a particular song, try to play it with same set of fingering, changing fingers will make it quiet difficult for you to memorize.

Observe your hands: Every time you play something watch your hands carefully, this will help you to connect with the music and music sheet.

Learn in parts: Try to memorize the musical piece in parts rather than learning it all together in one time.

Listen to others: Another important step is to listen to music played by others, analyzing it and learning through this exercise.
