Beautiful Pop Piano Music

11 Beautiful Pop Piano Solos & Sheet Music

Although not everyone would play Bieber over Beethoven, pop music is catchy. I’ve found some gems. Air Supply, for example, is on repeat these days because my dad liked their music.

Pop music is a great way to learn about chord structure–and improvisation. Once you learn the few chords, you’ll be able to play most pop songs repeating on the radio.

If you teach music and don’t already use pop music in your curriculum, why don’t you give it a try? It’s a great motivator when students can show off in front of their friends.

Here’s the beautiful pop piano music that my sister’s friend, Matthew, collected. Enjoy!

 

All Out Of Love – Air Supply – arr. Maucoli Pianoman

Classic. It’s one of my dad’s favourite songs. This pianist even has the backcomb hair. (Sheet Music)

 

See You Again – Wiz Khalifa ft Charlie Puth

A beautiful piano solo. (Sheet Music)

 

Stitches – Shawn Mendes – arr. Christopher Siu

A simple arrangement of the pop hit. The piano in the video could use some tuning and the left hand could be softer overall, but I quite like the simplicity. (Sheet Music)

 

Sorry – Justin Bieber – arr. Joyce Leong

Justin Bieber’s comeback surprised many people, including myself; while Sorry isn’t my favourite song of his, I don’t mind it. This is a straight transcription of the piece. (Sheet Music)

 

Like I’m Going To Lose You – Meghan Trainor ft. John Legend (arr. Joyce Leong)

A softer version of the strong pop song. (Sheet Music)

 

I Really Like You – Carly Rae Jepson

The original song is a bit annoying and repetitive for my liking–the piano solo is much easier on the ears. The piano doesn’t sound whiny and has a better flow. (Sheet Music)  (Sheet music doesn’t necessarily match the video.)

 

Hello – Adele – arr. Joyce Leong

(Sheet Music)

 

One Call Away – Charlie Puth – arr. Christopher Siu

(Sheet Music)

 

Flashlight – Jessie J (Pitch Perfect 2)

One of my favourite twinkly pop pieces. (Sheet Music) (Sheet music doesn’t necessarily match the video.)

 

I Want It That Way – Backstreet Boys

I will always laugh at this song. I wonder if kids these days know it at all. Anyways. (Sheet Music) (Sheet music doesn’t necessarily match the video.)

 

Come Sail Away – Styx

A fun piece to play, prettily decorated with a few ornaments along the way. (Sheet Music)

Feel free to share this with a friend who might need a lift in their day.

    It’s funny how an arrangement can make a terrific difference. “I really like you” is a REALLY annoying song on iTunes (original format); kind of sounds like an old Britney Spears piece. Whiny; yeah, that’s exactly right. But the little piano arrangement here is really really good. I’d absolutely love to hear it expanded into a quiet, 15 minute piano piece…
    More best wishes to your dad.
    Mike ;)

      Thank you, Mike. And I’ll see what I can do about the quiet 15 minute piano piece.

    not bad. but you could try to ask some kids that are 12-16 years, cuz some of these are pretty old.

    but otherwise, good job. :)
