Moonlight Sonata Sheet Music and Piano Tutorial

Home » Piano Tutorials » 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.

Moonlight Sonata Music Sheet

To begin with, here's the free piano sheet of the moonlight sonata.

If you see a term you don't know I suggest you browse through the website to find its meaning and by doing so you're guarantied to learn a lot about music through this beautiful piece.

In some parts of the moonlight sonata sheet music I added comments on how I think you should play certain lines.
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.
