You have to be careful when searching for downloadable piano songs. There are a lot of people who search for pop songs or famous modern songs as sheet music so they can learn them at home and play them on the piano.
There are many web sites that claim to offer these for free but once you arrive you find that there is only an excerpt or that it simply isn’t free and you need to pay.
This is quite normal as all of today’s music is copyrighted and the any distribution of this music requires payment to the artist and their agents/record companies.
You can however legitimately download some of the classical masterpieces for free. These are in the public domain and not all the publisher will charge.
If you need to know where to get some free classical pieces then get in touc with me and I will point you in the right direction.
