Difference between Easy Piano, Beginner Piano and 5-Finger Piano arrangements

5-Finger Piano
These are the most simplified piano arrangements that we sell. They are abridged arrangements featuring very simple keys and rhythms and can be played with both hands staying in the same position. They're perfect for absolute beginners and also useful as sight-reading practice for early graded examinations.

Beginner Piano
Ideal for pianists of roughly grade 1-3 standard. Arrangements are abridged, rhythms are simplified where necessary and the left-hand generally plays a basic accompaniment. These are the natural next step up from our 5-Finger Piano arrangements.

Easy Piano
Easy piano arrangements entail full versions of the songs, but not quite as complex as Piano, Vocal & Guitar arrangements. The approximate standard of these arrangements is grades 2-4.​
