One of my projects this summer has been to remedy that! Thanks to the "Copyrighted Songs" program at Sheet Music Plus (which secures licensing for independent composers to legally arrange copyrighted music) I have been working to create arrangements of favorite pop, video game, and anime songs that are accessible to beginning and elementary-level students! Here is a sampling of the arrangements I now have available (click on the pictures to see and hear the music):
Pre-reading arrangements (including note names)

What do you think? Do your beginners enjoy playing their favorite pop songs right away? Any student favorites that you just haven't been able to find? I'd love to hear from you in the comments!
