Pop Music Piano Book
Are you looking for a pop music piano book? Most beginner piano books don't include pop songs, largely because of copyright issues and because the level of difficulty in pop songs is much higher.
Why Are Pop Songs Harder?
First of all, the rhythms of pop music are much more complex than, say, a song like TWINKLE TWINKLE.
Our books simplify these more complex rhythms, so the song sounds right but is easier to play.

Not all pop songs are rhythmically complex, but they generally are too difficult for younger kids.
Try BABY SHARK:
The notes themselves are not difficult for kids, but the rhythms are very angular and complex, and are likely to pose problems for younger kids.
Unless a child knows BABY SHARK, it will be difficult to get the rhythm even close. But that is the advantage of using familiar songs: kids already know the general idea. Give them an unknown piece of music and they are lost.
For example, if you give a kid the sheet music (even the super easy version) for a familiar pop song like ALL OF ME (John Legend) the child will be bewildered unless you can translate the song into easy terms the child can understand.
Pop Songs By Number
Our book POP SONGS BY NUMBER contains 38 familiar pop songs that have been arranged to be easy to play, yet sound convincingly like the original.
Suitable for Adults and Children
Perhaps the real point is that FAMILIAR songs are appealing to children because the musical image of the song is already in their brain.
