If you just started to learn to play piano, it's very important to have fun and be motivated. Like this you stay tuned and want to learn more and more, and above all you want to continue playing.

Choose songs that you like a lot for your practice time!

Very nice and popular songs on the piano are: „Für Elise“, „River flows in you“ and the Soundtrack from „Amélie“.

In this article you find all three of them, of course as piano tutorials 🙂


„Für Elise“ Piano Tutorial Parts 1-5 - very easy for beginners.

How to play „RIVER FLOWS IN YOU“ from Yiruma on the piano - a easy tutorial of the full song:

Choose one of them, that you like best or learn all three of them, but in turn of course 🙂

But if you first of all need some basic knowledge, then better start with my free piano crash course.

Please write a comment below if you have any questions, remarks or suggestions.

I’d be very happy 🙂

Thank you for participating!

    Hi Thomas,

    I saw your amazing arrangement of Can't Help Falling in Love With You on YouTube. I was wondering if the sheet music can be purchased or sent?


    • Hey Carol, glad to hear that! Thank you so much!!
      There is no sheet music of this arrangement, but there will be a tutorial for it soon. 🙂


  • Ricardo Espinosa says:

    Hi Thomas! Thank you for teaching me the first part of " The river flows in you " where do I go to learn the second part?

    • Hey Ricardo, you're welcome. It should be there now 🙂

  • Hi Thomas, do you have a tutorial on Moonlight Sonata - Beethoven?

  • Christine says:

    Hi Thomas
    I am a beginner and saw your Fur Elise tutorial. Your method of teaching is fantastic. Thank you. I would love to be able to play Bohemian Rhapsody, do you have a tutorial in English please.

    Many thanks Christine

  • Hi Thomas,

    I am amazed about your way of teaching piano, I learned COMPTINE D'UN AUTRE ÉTÉ just by watching your video, thank you so much ! A long time ago I have actually stopped learning new songs, because I hate reading music sheet, so your way of teaching piano just encouraged me to continue. Now, I would like to learn " Dawn" from pride and prejudice and "Thanks giving" from Gerge Winston , and "Cinema Paradiso, Love Theme (Ennio Morricone) ". I would like to buy a course that contains all 3 of them. If such course does not exist, can you customise a course for me , and if so , what would it cost?

    Many Thanks Jennifer

    many thanks,shayan

    • Hi Shayan
      I will put this song on my wish list. Because of the huge amount of music requests I cannot promise that I can fulfill all of them but I give my best.

    • Hi Terry,
      great to hear from you.
      Piano Complete is an online download class. In your library you always have access to the class. You can download the videos, burn them to DVD or copy them on a stick. you don`t get a hardcopy.

      Have fun
