The movie Bohemian Rhapsody has brought enormous renewed interest to the life and music of Freddie Mercury. In fact, this movie is the highest-grossing musical biographical film of all time. Freddie used the piano in many of his songs, in recordings, and on stage. He used concert grands, synthesizers and even a harpsichord in his pieces.

In the song Bohemian Rhapsody, the piano plays an important and iconic role. We’ve taken a portion of this song and created a piano cover version for you! This means that we are going to teach you how to play the melody of the song (the part that is sung) as well as accompaniment pieces to compliment it. The result of this will be a performance-ready segment of one of the greatest songs ever written.

This song is not an easy song. But that doesn’t mean that you should be intimidated by it. Take things as slowly as you need to. The sheet music is provided below the video so that you can download it and play it at your own pace. Feel free to make notes on the pages for yourself to make things easier.

My advice is to take a few measures at a time to get really good at before moving on. The chords are also presented on the sheet music. This will allow you to create your own version of the song if you like to play by ear. Simply use the chord names to design your left-hand accompaniment and the melody to guide your right hand as it “sings”.

Enjoy!
