A Running List of Modern Pop/Rock Songs for Piano

Wowie Zowie – What a great list of songs to inspire some fire for lessons! For those of you who are struggling through music lessons, take a look at this great resource list. Thanks to author Amaryah for the great video links! Keep playing!

As promised in my last post “So your child wants to quit music lessons?“, here is a list of modern pop/rock songs for piano that you can introduce to your child or student (in no particular order).  I plan on adding songs to the list as they are released or discovered.  *Disclaimer: some are not appropriate for kids but would still be good matches for young adult/adult students.

  1. “Say Something” by A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera
  2. “Atlas” by Coldplay 
  3. “Just the Way You Are” by Bruno Mars
  4. “Jar of Hearts” by Cristina Perri

  1. Wow… thanks for sharing! This is crazy… I’m just down the road from you. Literally! I’m based out of Lyons! Also, I used to run therapy groups at Helping Hand in Countryside! Keep up the good work!

    • That is crazy! Maybe we could grab lunch and swap stories. Are you an MT too? I could use some pointers for beginning music students – preschool and one piano student in 2nd grade. Maybe we could be a resource for each other. Now, go to bed! :). Looks like we are both night owls too.
