Ride of the Valkyries – Wagner classical music

Tutorial for piano beginners

Wilhelm Richard Wagner was one of the greatest romantic composers in 19th century.

Wagner gained well-deserved recognition due to his rich textures, harmonies and brilliant orchestration. “Ride of the Valkyries” comes from his opera “Die Walküre”, for which he also wrote the libretto (the text). The composition is very well-known up to this day. It has been used in movies such as “Rebel Without a Cause”, “Apocalypse Now” and “Valkyrie”. We have prepared a sheet of letter notes to help you learn playing this piece on your piano or keyboard. It’s really simple, just follow the letters and play the corresponding keys!
