9 upbeat pop songs I had on repeat

9 upbeat pop songs I had on repeat

Many Classical pianists don’t “learn” pop music, but let’s face it: playing pop music can be motivating and catchy. Let’s add some pop into the mix.

I picked out some favourite songs from my playlist for you. Then I paired these with video clips from the summer, that were swimming on my computer.

The piano sheet music solos are listed below.

P.S. Everyone calls these pop songs, but they’re more like rock. Just saying.

Sheet music:

1. Stacy’s Mom – Fountains of Wayne

2. It’s Time – Imagine Dragons

3. Marry the Night – Lady Gaga

4. Material Girl – Madonna

5. Karen – Mika

6. Heroes – Mika

7. Tah Dah – Mika

8. Escape – Enrique Iglesias

9. Waking Up in Vegas – Katy Perry

Pop/rock music is great to teach. It’s fun but it also often has lots of tricky rhythms. I believe that you should teach a mixture of music genres to make it interesting for both your students and yourself.
