"I got the idea to make this book after I had already written half of it. A couple of years ago I started to write songs for my own piano students; I wanted to write fun and fresh songs that were aligned with my pedagogical style. When I had written over 15 songs and basic music theory guides for my students, I realized that I’m going to make a book based on the materials I had created. And here we are! Most of my students started playing piano as a 7- to-10 -year-old so I wanted to create a piano book for beginners that is ideal for primary school children. I like to keep things playful and find it quite fun for adults as well to learn to play through such lighthearted beginners’ book as this one. I'm sure your "inner child" will be delighted! So your whole family can learn to play together with this book. The content is designed so that anyone can start playing piano with this book, even if they don't take piano lessons. In the beginning of the book, you’ll learn the basic music theory, which allow you to get off to a good start in playing. More tips about different themes and techniques in different songs  are given along the book. I use finger numbering and mark the position of the hand in each song as I have found that with almost 20 years of teaching experience, these work really well to in the beginning.  With my method the students learn very quickly to play even if they can't read all the notes in the beginning. The joy of playing is the best state of mind to absorb new information, so we learn the notes along the way while playing fun songs. The second reason that I created this book was that this year there would have been more students coming to classes than I could take, so I wanted to share my method and learning materials with as many people as possible so that anyone can start playing the piano right away, even if they aren’t able to get to piano lessons right away. The songs in this book are fun, different, and tested and accepted by my own students. For example the ”Pikajuna” ie. ”Express Train” was a legend at birth, almost all my students will surely know it by heart for the rest of their lives! The difficulty level of the book is progressing at a pace that has been ideal for most of my students. Of course, every learner is an individual, so some spend a little more time on the songs and others play them through quite effortlessly. The style is free as long as you embrace what you were supposed to learn in the song. There are  a couple of popular bonus tracks at the end of the book: Harry Potter and Batman! I have arranged them into easier versions, so that you are able to play them with the skills you have after studying this book. If some songs feel too challenging, you can return to them later or play them for example with just the right hand. With my book, I want to share everything I know about learning the basics of playing piano and enable the joy of playing for as many people as possible; share what I’ve been blessed to receive. Personally, I feel that piano playing has been one of the greatest sources of joy in my life; my music path began when I started piano lessons in an acquaintance's living room as a 4-years-old.  I have to say, though, that many of my students have only started classes at the age of 40+ and developed into quite skilled pianists, so age really doesn't matter. I wish you a lot of fun times and  joy of learning with my book! I hope you’ll love it as much as I do. With love, Hanna"

Music Sheets For My Published Neoclassical Piano Compositions  Available At The Online Shop! 


Music sheets to my published piano compositions are available at the online shop. The music sheets are in pdf form so you can buy and print them right away.  


The genre of my compositions is a mix of contemporary piano, neoclassical piano, classical piano and cinematic piano. The same genre is represented by e.g. Amelie composer Yann Tiersen, Ludovico Einaudi, Philip Glass and Olafur Arnalds. My biggest personal inspiration has been the music by Michael Nyman for the film ”Piano”. My classical background also shines through quite strongly in my compositions and style of playing.

Joulupuu on rakennettu

Koska meillä on joulu

Joulu tullut on

Tuiki, tuiki tähtönen


Joulu on taas

Nyt syttyy valot tuhannet

Maa on niin kaunis

Porsaita äidin oomme kaikki

We Wish You A Merry Christmas

Varpunen jouluaamuna

Heinillä härkien kaukalon

Jouluyö, juhlayö

Sinivuorten yö

No, onkos tullut kesä?

Hei, tonttu-ukot


Tonttujen jouluyö

Auld Lang Syne

Kilisee, kilisee kulkunen

Joulun kellot

Kuului laulu enkelten

Sankta Lucia (Pyhä Lucia)

The First Nowell

Jingle Bells

Winter Wonderland

Oh Holy Night

"Why a Christmas piano book? I have dreamed of making a Christmas-themed piano book for a long time. I love Christmas - especially the time before Christmas, the thrill of waiting for something so magical. The excitement in the air. Smell of gingerbread and hyacinth (="The smell of happiness" as my daughter calls hyacinths). Candles. Christmas lights. Candlelit concerts. Sharing Christmas spirit with strangers in the grocery store or on a dog walk. Gratitude for the loved ones in your life. Playing Christmas songs with my piano students and talking about our Christmas traditions - and making new ones. This book is dedicated to my amazing students who have inspired me year after year and shared their Christmas magic with me and to my kids who I love the most in the world; who share my huge love for the Christmas season. Anyone can learn to play Christmas carols with this beginner's book. Some of the songs are marked with hand positions and exact finger sequences to support learning the songs. My hope is that with the help of this book, as many beginner pianists as possible will learn to play wonderful, familiar Christmas songs and thus be able to spread the Christmas spirit to their loved ones. I wish you the joy of learning and endless Christmas magic with this book. With love, Hanna"
