3 Beatles Songs to Learn on the Piano

The Beatles are one of the most talented bands in history, whose music has inspired generations of musicians, songwriters and producers. 

With the release of the film “Yesterday”, which chronicles the life of Jack Malik, a struggling musician who, after surviving an accident, wakes up to find the Beatles never existed, what better to celebrate the fab four than to take a trip down Penny Lane and have a go at playing one of their tunes?

Hey Jude

Originally titled “Hey Jules”, Hey Jude was written by Paul McCartney to comfort John Lennon’s son, Julian, during his parents’ divorce. A song that sounds great both on piano and guitar, it’s also easy to play!

“Michelle” is intoxicating. The Beatles and the French language make an excellent combination in this song, which showcases their music ability (and Paul’s vocal prowess) and its finest.

Let it Be

The inspiration came to McCartney in a dream he had about his late mother, who reassured him, saying “Just let it be…” She is also cited as the inspiration for the “Mother Mary” lyric.

There are so many wonderful versions of this song, but I think this may be my favorite.
