Fun Halloween Piano Sheet Music

October 18, 2021

Halloween is my FAVORITE time of year!

Admittedly, I’ve slowed down on composing a bit since going back to teach in person, but I’ve been trying to keep a little busy on some of my free days with arranging and composing sheet music for Halloween.

I wanted to take a quick moment to share some of my favorite pieces and arrangements for “spooky season” this year.

Danse Macabre by Camille Saint-Saens (arranged for piano)

 
Perhaps one of the lesser known “creepy” pieces is Danse Macabre, by French composer, Camille Saint-Saens. I love this piece on so many levels! It’s an evil sounding waltz in a minor key with some really interesting contrasts. I love how it surprises the first time listener and never gets old even years after the first time you hear it.

This arrangement is an abridged version for late beginner/early intermediate pianist and is really fun to play. You can buy a digital copy of the “Danse Macabre” sheet music for piano on my sheet music shop website using the button below!


Toccata and Fugue in D Minor by J.S. Bach arranged for Easy piano

By far the piece that is the most popular download on my sheet music shop for Halloween music is Toccata and Fugue! This piece was originally for pipe organ and is the “go to” for scary Halloween classical music.

This is an abridged version of Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, vastly simplified for new pianists and you can buy the sheet music download with or without note names.


I watched a black cat Cross my path easy piano solo by Christina Lopriore

This is a little bluesy piano piece I wrote during COVID lockdown that has been a big hit with a few of my piano students. It’s a simple short little song about black cats (and the fact that they are NOT unlucky!)
This composition is a great easy Halloween song for a young piano student, who has just learned sharps and flats. They can even sing along for fun!


Piano Sheet Music from “Nightmare before Christmas”

Of course, no Halloween sheet music collection is ever complete without something from Danny Elfman or a Tim Burton film. I have both “This is Halloween” and “Sally’s Song” sheet music for piano available at Sheet Music Plus.
