Easy Valentine Piano Music

Valentine Music_Revised

This post has links to all of the Valentine music currently on my website.

Remember last year when I posted these links?  Well, as some of you know, I’ve been trying to revise all my pre-reading and primer level music to vertical (portrait) orientation, rather than horizontal (landscape). The reason I put this level in landscape in the first place is that there is more room for big notes. But it is so hard to use in a 3-ring binder! I’m determined to eventually remake all of my landscape scores!

Question of the day: Do you like the borders I draw? Do you think they add something, or do they make it harder to print. I’m just curious what other teachers think.

Valentines Day PR  – pre-reading with finger numbers only, on the black keys.

Roses are Red – pre-reading with finger numbers only, on the black keys.

Chocolate Valentines Pre-reading version is played on the white keys using all the fingers.

Chocolate Valentines On the Staff  came about because one of my students saw the pre-reading version and asked me to make one for her on the staff. We made it longer by playing it several times, each time in a different octave.

Here are the rest of the Valentine’s Day folk songs from my website that that I have arranged in various levels.

Love Somebody, Yes I Do – Late Elementary (with 8th notes)

Love Somebody, Yes I Do – Primer Level (5-finger position on the staff)

Love Somebody, Yes I Do – Pre-reading

There’s a Little Wheel A-Turning in My Heart –  Early Intermediate (lots of hands together and some finger substitutions)

Below is the graphic I made last year. All the music on the left is now in portrait orientation!

    Thanks for so many fun resources, Susan! I appreciate you sharing your wonderful talents!

  2. Thank you again for being a wonderful resource for us!

    I found only one version of “Love Somebody, Yes I Do” under both levels.

      Sharon, thanks for letting me know. I’ve fixed it. I had inadvertently used the wrong link for the primer level. I fixed it, but you might need to refresh your screen to see it.

  4. Hi Susan,
    I would prefer without the border. They are cute but it does crowd the music and like others have said the cost of ink can be an issue. But I love your printables, especially the holiday items. The students love seeing music and worksheets that go with the holiday. They always make mention of it. Thanks for all you do for piano teachers. It is appreciated:)

    Love the borders! I use a laser printer so it’s not as costly to print.

  6. Marilyn Brennan

    I love the borders!!

  7. Mary Kreider

    I love the borders, and I think the borders look very appealing to the students.

      When I make the pre-reading material, I get really carried away! They are fun to make for Christmas and Valentine music! But they are harder to fit onto the page in portrait because space is a premium. Also, everyone’s printer has a different size border, and some printers don’t have a fit to page option.

    I think your borders are adorable, but I’m really” ink” conscious now that I’m into using binders for my students. A lot of your worksheets I use on line so that’s not an issue, but for the music, I’m all about “printer friendly”!

  9. Printer ink is so expensive, so I personally would prefer not to have borders. But I love your teaching resources!!

    • Susan Paradis

      Aww, but they are so much fun to draw! But I see your point. I left the border off one of the new ones because there wasn’t room.
