    One of the best beginner pieces that actually has some good technique improving fingerings is Pachelbel's Canon in D. Not only is it a recognizeable classic, but it can be played quickly (to build dexterity) and still sound good.

    Like a lot of other people said, id say your best bet is to get a piano song book,

    btw a REALLY easy song to learn and play is greensleeves

    Try Mozarts' K 545 Sonata in C Major 1st movement. God, I love that song. When you get good, post a MIDI of your interpertation of it in MIDI format! lol

    Good selection Mike 2490! It's a fun one to play too. :)

    U just have to watch out with the simpler versions of popular songs as they have been dumbed down and lose the quality of the song

    heres what i did :)

    I am a self taught Keyboardest of 6 years now, im still not the greatest but i started out just playing around with simple tunes on my my mothers old piano.
    Now i can use my keyboard to play the board parts for songs by nightwish like Ever Dream and Bless the Child.

    Any way, believe it or not, a good place to start is to listen to some of the older 80s glam rock, like Europes the final countdown, the riff there is very simple, actually alot of Europes stuff is good to practice with.

    I used Europe, Bon jovi and some old simple classical and folk tunes to practice with at first, like mary had a little a lamb, and twinkle twinkle.

    If you want to make it easier on yourself and you can read music, get yourself a keyboard that has a disk drive, why? because most boards with a disk drive play midi files, the last two i had did that anyway. if you find a midi with just a piano part, if ur keyboard like mine reads the score it will give u note for note and time to play in and u can slow the song down so it goes slow enough for you to learn, thats also how i learned. Just a couple of suggestions from someone who has been there and done that. Feel free to PM me if you want to talk further :) later and good luck

    hi! me too a begginer

    hi! me too a begginer (well, I come from advanced guitar hehehe). I started with famous songs like:

    *Aladdin - A whole new world (I have no file; I have the original book).

    *Sonata quasi una fantasia (Beethoven)--> here you have the midi, if you like...--> http://rapidshare.de/files/21588814/carousel.mid.html

    *Prelude I (Bach Bwv 846)--> http://rapidshare.de/files/21588634/Johann_Sebastian_BACH_-_Preludio_Bwv_846.zip.html

    *Britney Spears - Everytime --> http://nephele.kulichki.com/down/index.php?Everytime.pdf

    *Enya - A day without rain--> (I recommend you to hear the song to know how to play is, making the rythm well)--> http://rapidshare.de/files/21588560/a_day_without_rain-enya.zip.html

    I started also with the elevtronic piano (a big Casio I don't remember the model) with Bach - Tocata and Fugue in Dm --> http://rapidshare.de/files/21589051/Bach_Toccata_Fugue_Organ.pdf.html (I am stuck around compass 40: this song must be played with foot-keyboard too, so as I have not it I've managed to play with only 2 hands till that point)

    hope you enjoy!!! :p
