Best 100 modern piano songs

Although not everyone would play Bieber over Beethoven, pop music is catchy. I’ve found some gems. Air Supply, for example, is on repeat these days because my dad liked their music.

Pop music is a great way to learn about chord structure–and improvisation. Once you learn the few chords, you’ll be able to play most pop songs repeating on the radio.

We all know and love (for the most part) the popular classics…

But there are tons of phenomenal contemporary pieces that are right up there.

I’ve compiled a showcase of 16 beautiful contemporary piano solos by 16 different artists–

uplifting, melancholic, blithe, a mix of beautiful piano music.

I’d hesitate to label these works further than ‘contemporary’. After all, what’s in a name?

There is an entire world of music out there that you probably haven’t seen half of.

Here’s the beautiful pop piano music that my sister’s friend, Matthew, collected. Enjoy!
