Will You Be My Valentine

Will You Be My Valentine

Today I am posting a new Valentine’s piece that I wrote just for young children.  It is in middle C position, (both thumbs on middle C) and it has no skips, just stepping notes in each hand. If you’re not an experienced piano teacher, but like to work with your young child at the piano, you may be interested to know that notes that move from one finger to the next are much easier for beginners. Most piano teachers wait until students have mastered stepping notes before they move into notes that skip fingers. That is not something I knew when I was a young teacher. Back before there was such a thing as piano pedagogy, we learned on the job! I’m sure a lot of my readers can identify with that!

This will be good piece for sight-reading or just something fun the week of Valentine’s Day.

In case you’re looking for some more easy Valentine’s Day music for beginners, go to my Valentine’s Music page here. There are also some that are a little harder, including one that is late elementary. I’ve written several levels of this one, because it used to be a favorite of mine when I had a classroom.

Here is one of my favorite preschool songs that I’ve made in both pre-reading and on-the-staff versions.

    Adorable! I’m adding “Will You Be My Valentine” to the other Valentine’s Day pieces you’ve composed and I share them my students. Thank you so much!

    Perfect timing! Instead of a Valentine card, I will give each of my students a piece of Valentine sheet music! Thank you, Susan.
