Starting to play a new instrument can make you feel confused and also overwhelmed: without further directions this is totally normal, after all.
But after that first confusion, you might be wondering which are the best easy piano songs that can get you started on this instrument: in this article we’ll see some and also link to video tutorials on Youtube, that you can watch for an easier time learning those pieces!
TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star is definitely one of the most beginner-friendly songs on piano (and also often taught to novices) and you can see this by yourself trying to practice this nursery tune as well: you can check below for a quick visual tutorial
No need for presentations for the second song in this list: this evergreen can be heard almost at every birthday party, so you’ll already have the song in mind when you try to play this (a great advantage for everyone).

“Jingle Bells” is an easy piano song that tons and tons of people know: the rhythm of this is repetitive and easy, and also without big difficult notes, making it an easy song for every beginner.
As said before, also, it is usually way easier to learn a song that you know, because you already have the rhythm figured out and for this reason you’ll be more comfortable when you have to play this without missing the right tempo.
The first verse is a bit more complicated than the rest of the tune, but isn’t too hard. Have a look at this tutorial of Jingle Bells and give it a go:
LET IT BE
“Let It Be” is an iconic Beatles song with a catchy and easily recognisable melody: This song has a very catchy melody, and it will help you learn how to identify different notes and chords on scales.
It can also be (a bit) more difficult compared to the previous two, but it can be successfully played by anyone after a bit of practice: the more you try the task of learning chords and the notes, the more your hands and mind will then recall the necessary stuff for playing the song, making your piano/keyboard be like a natural extension of your hands.
You can see a video tutorial about it in the link below:

CONCLUSION: WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN YOU START TO PLAY PIANO AS A TOTAL BEGINNER
There are so many things to consider when you start to play piano as a beginner: It is important to be prepared for the challenges that come with learning to play an instrument from scratch.
Something you should do is to remember that you don’t need to feel rushed while you learn- take your time and focus on one thing at a time.
Often times, people feel overwhelmed when they first start playing piano, but really, you shouldn’t: anyone who’s now a professional started with silly questions and with tons of mistakes, the only thing that will make you advance is the love of playing and the practice, no shortcuts are available under these aspects.
So just go to your piano/keyboard and start playing now!
