Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence

An arrangement of Schubert’s “Ave Maria”, quoted by Beyoncé in her song of the same name. The LH should be a good exercise for an advanced intermediate player. Click the image below to download the PDF.

Note that the RH should play all the notes in bars 1 and 15 apart from the bass Bb’s, and also the top 3 notes of the final chord.

Ave Maria

An arrangement of the “Swan Theme” from Tchaikovsky’s ballet, Swan Lake. Part of my free intermediate classical course. Click the image below to download the PDF.

Swan Theme

A beginner arrangement of Schubert’s Impromptu Op. 90 No.3. A favourite recording is by Dinu Lipatti from his last recital. The LH will be a good test of your ability to read low bass notes that you should have learned in my Read Music Fast course! I haven’t included exercises as no section is particularly harder than the rest. Part of my free intermediate classical course. Click the image below to download the PDF.

Impromptu

An arrangement of the main theme from Satie’s “Je te veux” (“I want you”). Part of my free intermediate classical course. Click the image below to download the PDF.

The wiggly line by the RH chord in bar 4 means that you play it from bottom to top, with the top G coinciding with the LH chord on the beat. Bars 29-36 will need more practice than the rest.
