Classical, Scary Piano Solos Perfect for Halloween

Halloween TreeWhenever we think of Halloween sheet music, it’s easy to think of songs from NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS or piano solos like Tubular Bells from THE EXORCIST. While there is no shortage of spooky movie sheet music, it can be pretty challenging to think of contemporary or classical piano solos that have a somber or scary theme.

We came up with twenty piano solos that we think are pretty scary. Many of these are by your favorite classical sheet music composers including Ludwig Van Beethoven, Edvard Grieg and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

When we were looking into our collection of sheet music for these scary piano solos, we realized that many of these compositions are in minor keys. Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, for example, is extremely scary when played on the organ.

The complexity of the arrangements we have listed here ranges from easy piano to advanced. Which of these scary piano solos have you played? Which do you want to learn how to play?
