Für Elise, also known as "For Elise", is one of the most famous piano pieces in the history of piano works. It is said that Ludwig Van Beethoven, one of the greatest musician of all time, specially created this music piece for a student of his that is named Elise, but no one can be certain for sure. However, even though it is so popular, it is actually also one of the easiest music pieces that one can learn to play using the piano. This music piece is very popular and commonly used in beginner piano lessons and classes. 

 

 

5. Ode To Joy by Ludwig Van Beethoven

 

A favourite amongst piano schools and teachers, Ode To Joy's has a simple melody and is easy to master even for a beginner! It is often the first classical piano piece that most students will learn when they first started their piano lessons.

7. Canon in D by Johann Pachelbel  

 

Canon in D was composed by Johann Pachelbel, but the time he composed it was unknown due to lost records.
