How to Play Autumn Leaves – Easy Piano Tutorial

Social:

In this piano tutorial, you will learn how to play the Jazz standard, Autumn Leaves on piano. I have simplified it for you.

Actually, there are two tutorials on this page. In the first tutorial, you will learn how to play an easier version of Autumn Leaves. You will play single notes with the left hand and the melody of the song with the right. In the second tutorial, you will learn how to play chords with the left hand and the melody with the right hand. If any of these chords are new to you or challenging, check out the piano chords page.

The tutorials are broken down into parts. I start by playing the entire song, then we take a look at the right hand part or the melody, followed by the left hand part or bass notes/chords of Autumn Leaves.  Simply take it one step at a time. At the end, we put everything together and play the entire song.
