I’ve spent years trying to find the perfect piano arrangement of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, and this is it! Philip Keveren always nails his piano arrangements, especially of popular music.
I find that it’s hard to find popular piano music that is a good representation of the original music and is also well-suited for the piano.
Many of my intermediate piano students have enjoyed working through this arrangement, and it’s also one of my favorites to play for fun.
Be sure to watch the video above and you’ll hear that Keveren has a gift for adapting music to the piano so that it’s beautiful, pianistic and satisfying.
You’ll also want to be sure to check out all of Philip Keveren’s collections. I particularly enjoy teaching and playing from these books:
- Coldplay for Classical Piano (Find it on Sheet Music Plus or Amazon)
- Billy Joel for Classical Piano (Find it on Sheet Music Plus or Amazon)
- Queen For Classical Piano (Find it on Sheet Music Plus or Amazon)
- Elton John For Classical Piano (Find it on Sheet Music Plus or Amazon)
- The Beatles: 18 Fab Four Arrangements (Find it on Sheet Music Plus or Amazon)
