Moonlight Sonata Sheet Music and Piano Tutorial
The Piano Sonata No. 14 in C-sharp minor "Quasi una fantasia" is popularly known as the "Moonlight" Sonata.
This piece is longer then the usual piece we work on together and that's why I decided not to explain each and every note in the piece but give you some chord symbles instead so you'll know what you're playing and I added some explanation on what's really happening in every given moment in the piece harmonically, rhytmically, and melodically.

In some parts of the moonlight sonata sheet music I added comments on how

All in all, the melody should be played louder then the accompaniment and I hope that through understand the active forces in the piece you'll understand why I sometimes accelerate or play more slowly.
