Free: Waltzing Matilda sheet music for Australia Day!

Tomorrow is Australia Day! So I thought that you or your students might like to play Waltzing Matilda to celebrate.


This is an intermediate arrangement from BOOK 4 of my piano instruction books called Upper Hands Piano: A Method for Adults 50+ to Spark the Mind, Heart and Soul (available on Amazon!) If you would like to learn more about my books, please visit my website.
Upper Hands Piano, BOOK 4

If you are a beginner you can play just the right hand melody. More advanced students can either read the chords or use the chord symbols to play the chords. Learning about chords is really important for pianists, so it is a big part of what I teach in the Upper Hands Piano method books.

I hope you enjoy playing Waltzing Matilda, perhaps with a piece of toast and vegemite, some barbecued snags (sausages) and maybe a couple of stubbies (beer). It’s summer in Australia, and we can dream….

With love and music, Gaili

    thanks so much for the Rachmaninoff. I am loving it. Also for Waltsing Matilda….. very apt. I hav been chasing Avo Paart’s Spiegel im spiegel around the net… it is such a lovely piece of music.
    Is he too modern ie copyright bound… for us to try?

    PS I am still enjoying Erik Sati Gnossieme

    thanks for all you do

    1. Thanks so much for your kind words Narelle! I love the work of Arvo Pärt, but as you suspect, his music is not in the public domain, so I can’t offer you an arrangement. You can buy it online or in a sheet music store. I have a student who played Spiegel im Spiegel and we both enjoyed it. Hope you enjoyed a lovely Australia Day!
      Thanks again, Gaili

      1. My husband plays for Aged Care Facilities in the Mandurah WA area and has been looking for piano version of Waltzing Matilda. This free download is ideal for his purposes. Thank you so much
