00241880-wlModern Movie Favorites: Songs from Hit Movies
Are your kids still singing or humming tunes from movies like “Trolls,” “Moana,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Star Wars,” or “The Lego Movie”? These two new collections are great for kids learning to play piano!

The easier book is the 5-Finger level, which means one finger at a time – very easy. It includes eight songs, and the lyrics are also included. There is also an optional duet part for a parent or teacher to play along. Songs include: Can’t Stop the Feeling, City of Stars, Evermore, Everything Is Awesome, How Far I’ll Go, Spirit in the Sky, Try Everything, and Unforgettable.

The Big Note collection has 18 songs from recent movies, including “Rey’s Theme” from the new Star Wars movies.  The big note level has large notes for easy reading, and is a little more advanced than the 5-Finger level. Two hands play at once, so there is harmony, making each piece more pleasing to the ear. Songs include: Alice, The Bare Necessities, Bundle of Joy, Can’t Stop the Feeling, City of Stars, Evermore, Everything Is Awesome, How Far I’ll Go, In Summer, Lava, Linus and Lucy, Rey’s Theme, Something Wild, Sophie’s Theme, Spirit in the Sky, Strong, Try Everything, and Unforgettable.

These collections are great to play for fun! For more information about these collections or other popular piano music, call us at 1-800-42-MUSIC, email us at keyboard@stantons.com, or visit our website, http://www.stantons.com. Shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs!
