Easy Piano Lead Sheets: World Folk Songs 1


Easy Piano Lead Sheets and Chord Charts: World Folk Songs Edition Level 1 is an accessible resource for newcomers to lead-sheet playing. This comprehensive book offers 60 simplified folk song lead sheets and chord charts, allowing students to quickly and easily learn their favorite tunes from around the world, as well as some songs that may be new to them.


We wanted a lead sheet series designed for educational purposes, so we included valuable tips for lead-sheet playing, fingering suggestions, and chord warm-up patterns to help prepare students to learn this skill. In this book, we have also included background information on each piece so students can learn the history behind the song. This collection would serve as an excellent teaching tool in elementary music education classes or group piano courses.

Key Features:

  • Songs written in the easiest keys of C, F, and G Major (plus relative minors)

  • Diagrams for chords and music symbols

  • Chords and melodies printed in large type for easy reading

  • A star rating system that indicates the difficulty level of chords in each song

  • Translations as needed

  • Background information for each song

Easy Piano Lead Sheets and Chord Charts: World Folk Songs contains songs that are beloved in many different parts of the world like “Loch Lomond” from Scotland and “Arirang” from Korea, making it an essential addition to your music collection.
