This beautiful arrangement of Amazing Grace is easy to play, but sounds full enough for adult students or any student wanting to make their playing sound mature. The setting begins simply, but unfolds into a big and grand sound that all ages of students appreciate.
What is the level of Amazing Grace?
This arrangement of Amazing Grace is mid-elementary. The only time eighth notes are used are in the melody, which is familiar enough to all students that they do not need to have the ability to “read” eighth notes to be successful playing these few eighths. Other than those few occasions of eighths in the melody, the smallest note value is a quarter note.
This Amazing Grace easy arrangement is notated in middle C position, so it is a familiar position to beginning piano students. Piano students hold the damper pedal down during the entire piece, giving it a fuller sound. Toward the end, the student moves their left hand to play a few deep fifths which activate so many of the upper harmonics. In turn, this make this a mature sounding piece for any piano student.
What ages and level of students will enjoy this Amazing Grace?
While this arrangement was written for mid to late elementary students, students of all ages and even more advanced levels can find it quite satisfying. Here is just one review from a teacher (there are more under the review tab):
I bought this Amazing Grace for my students taking lessons this summer and they absolutely loved it. The later beginners felt proud they could play something that sounded more difficult than it was, and early intermediates liked it because they could play it well after only a few practices!
Is there a discounted bundle that includes Amazing Grace Easy?
Yes! There is not a discounted bundle that includes Amazing Grace as well as an early intermediate, beautiful and contemporary arrangement of Ode to Joy! You can get this special deal here.
Level: Elementary (mostly quarters, halves, but a few eighths so the melody stays intact)
Highlights: A single pedal throughout makes the sound full. A few low fifths in the LH give even greater depth as the piece develops. Very rewarding for beginning students!
