    I like Ludovico Einaudi's stuff check him out on youtube. Some of the pieces are challenging cause u r just starting out but persevere. Its classical music btw.
    Einaudi =/= classical music. That's just an insult.

    I hate on Einaudi. Am I an elitist ***** now?

    @OP: On a more useful note: http://imslp.org/wiki/3_Gymnop%C3%A9dies_(Satie,_Erik).

    No; Einaudi is an untalented, populist hack.

    No: it's formulaic, banal ****e. Wallpaper-mâché, even.

    Granted, I'm no muso, but when you can anticipate every single key-change and chord-progression within a given sequence of notes – and each is guaranteed to repeat at least three times, with only minor variations – what's the point?

    Enjoy.

    N.B. Not all piano, I realise, but I'm recycling from an earlier contribution to save time (and besides which, I daresay many of those will have piano arrangements available elsewhere).

    Einaudi is sh!t. If that makes me elitist then that is a price I am prepared to pay in order for you to know how sh!t he is. His music has literally nothing to offer you.

    Yiruma's done better stuff than River Flows In You. :nothing: I've disliked it ever since that Twilight rip off.

    I love Yiruma, though. Beloved, My Memory and Kiss the Rain are all fantastic.

    I also like Aerith's Theme and Tifa's Theme from Final Fantasy on the piano. And Eyes On Me.

    And this: :awesome:

    This on piano. It's actually on youtube somewhere with the sheet music I think. I'm trying to learn it myself. But I can't remember how to read music so I'm listening to it on a loop then imitating the best I can. :L



    Edit: Ok, I know it's not all piano, but you can still play the tune on the piano. I love this song far too much. :love:

    Haay,

    I'm learning how to play the piano at the moment, I only have a keyboard though >.< but I have a friend who said I can use their piano anytime

    I played the guitar for 3 years and I feel its just not for me. However everytime I hear the piano I love it and just generally really like pianos xD

    I have just learnt "unfaithful" on piano by watching someone play it on youtube, the best one I could find and listening and matching the notes they were playing.

    The problem is I mostly listen to heavy rock and metal music, so I don't know much piano music >.<, could people please list some good piano songs...
    Thank you!! Much appreciated
    billy joel has a lot of great piano stuff eg. piano man and new york state of mind
    a thousand miles-vanessa carlton
    coldplay have a lot of piano stuff too like the scientist
    to build a home-cinematic orchestra

    Well seeing as though you are new to piano, focus on simple songs. Get the book "First Lessons in Bach: Books 1 and 2", great pieces for learning how to play and they sound great too.
