Music for Beginners

Dover publishes an outstanding selection of beginning music books and children's music books. Our specially designed First Book series include simplified versions of important pieces by such major composers as Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Schumann, and others. The easy-to-play renditions progressively increase in difficulty and are accessible to novice pianists of all ages. Plus, many First Books feature free MP3 downloads for all of the tunes, offering students the chance to familiarize themselves with the featured melodies. We also publish easy music books for learning the standards of ragtime, blues, and other popular music genres, guitar music books, how to play piano titles, and more.
