The Academy Award winning best original song Let It Go has become so popular that there are parodies and arrangements made of it, widely available on the Internet.

Due to popular demand, I have added the second half to complete the entire song. Click on the sample score (i.e. the image of the first page shown below) to get all six pages. Feedback welcome! This is a free download.

Which comes first – the music or the movie? I’ve yet to see the animated movie “Frozen” but the song “Let It Go” has become all but too familiar.

In fact, it has become so popular that a traffic reporter decided to write and sing his own parody of it. Huffington Post reported this awhile ago, with a video of his rendition. And here’s another one of when it’s not okay to let it go with “let it go” scenes from different movies. And if you like Star Trek, here’s a clever version for you — “Make It So

Should you decide to find the sheet music, you’re in luck. There are numerous arrangements for all levels of players. If the original key of F minor (with four flats) is daunting, try taking it down half step to my version with one sharp.

My arrangement is currently being tested by a young lady in Palo Alto. I played piano at her parents’ wedding many years ago, but I’ve yet to meet her. In mid-June, I taught a seven-year old boy how to play the lefthand of the first three pages while his nine-year old sister sang along in McClellanville, South Carolina.

My students, of course, got a surprise for their mid-term — to apply music theory questions to my three-page arrangement (of the first part of the song).

The new version (uploaded on July 1st, 2014) is the complete six pages — obtained by clicking on the sample first page below.

Here’s a version with lyrics you could karaoke to (note the original key is half a step higher than the easy piano version).

There are plenty of links to web pages with full lyrics to this song.

If you would like to support such arrangements for easy piano, please order a CD of my piano solos or help spread the word.

You might be wondering why I bothered to add rehearsal marks (A, B, C, D, etc) to this arrangement. I tell my students to study by sections – little chunks at a time. As I conduct my piano classes as ensembles, it’s also easier to find the section by calling out A, B, C etc.  The next step, if I don’t get tired of this song, is to write a piano duet arrangement. Now won’t that be fun!

UPDATE @ 8th April 2018
I’m so pleased to see YouTube recordings of my arrangement of “Let It Go” with credits to me. Many thanks!

I have to say, we tried to sing it during our “Oscar Winners” Jam Session in our ukulele club, but it is so very difficult for adults to sing at such a high range. We’d have to transpose to a key that’s more suitable for adults to sing. Transposing is just one of many skills we need to get the best out of our music making. I am scheduled to give a session on “Transpose to Compose” at the annual ukulele melee festival in Hamilton, MA.
