5 Songs To Learn On Cello & Keyboard

I play the cello and keyboard but I’ve only ever learnt out of a book that my teacher has given to me. Though I don’t mind the pieces assigned to me, it would be nice to learn songs that I recognise. So today’s post is going to be a list of those songs I would like to learn. On cello I’m only Grade 1 so I may not be able to play these pieces until I’ve progressed with my skills. But still, we can dream! I’m much more likely to practise when it’s a piece I know. So this might encourage me!

Hedwig’s Theme – John Williams

I’ve already learnt a little bit of this on keyboard and cello but I’d like to learn the full thing – with chords. Hedwig’s Theme is a Grade 2 piece for cello so that will definitely help me to learn more! My music teacher has already written a simplified piece for keyboard so I can practise that first and then move on to the bigger picture.

Money, Money, Money – ABBA

Due to my mum’s obsession I do already have a music book full of ABBA songs but I hardly pick it up unless I have loads of time in the summer. Though I’ve already set my new year’s goals maybe I could be ambitious and set myself another one?

Here Comes The Sun – The Beatles

One of my absolute favourites! I do know the notes to this one on cello and keyboard but I’m not very fluent with them.

Pink Panther

It sounds so great on cello; it’s the perfect timbre. I’m not so great at pizzicato but with a piece I know the rhythm to it will be easier to learn.

Let It Be – The Beatles

This is quite a popular piece to learn on cello so hopefully there’ll be either free sheet music or a YouTube video to watch!

Do you play any musical instruments? Are there any songs you’d like to learn?

  1. I personally play the trombone. I have only been playing for a couple years. I think Chlorine by Twenty One Pilots would be very challenging, but still possible with enough practice.

    • The trombone is a really cool instrument! In a couple of years you can learn a lot, I know that from experience of my cello playing. I wish you the best in learning that piece! Twenty Øne Pilots have some really good beats.
      Hope you’re well 🙂
