Imagine by John Lennon for easy piano

Anne Ku arranged four different versions of John Lennon’s Imagine solo piano accompaniment for different levels of playing.

John Lennon’s Imagine is a song with piano accompaniment in the key of C major. These days, you can play a well-tuned piano to his official video on youtube, as we did in class to any number of versions I arranged for the different levels of my adult piano students. In all versions, both hands are to play one octave lower than what’s written.

Slightly more difficult is the following version because I left out the fingerings and the right hand has to do a little more work than before.

To imitate the authentic piano arrangement, we need repetitive broken chords in eighth notes, on the right hand.

Finally, for those whose left hands are powerful enough to play octaves, here’s another version.

  1. Could someone please put up accurate sheet music of John Lennon’s How Do You Sleep i find the sheet music you buy is complete Rubbish why doesn’t some music publisher put up whats really being played in the records.

  2. Thanks. Do you have the score for me to play the melody (vocals) also – along with this sheet music? I have the original sheet music but not sure how to work the melody in with the correct fingering. Hope you can advise pls?. Many thanks.

      1. Oh thank you for replying. You are very kind. An advanced version would be great. Would it be possible it email a pdf ? At the moment I can play the original but the melody (vocals) are on an upper clef and not sure how best to play it all together on piano. Any help, advice or sheet music would be greatly appreciated.
        Thank you. — Luke.
