Let It Go piano

Let It Go from Disney's Frozen arranged for piano by Mona Rejino from Popular Piano Solos for All Methods, Book 5, 2nd edition published by the Hal Leonard Corporation. My 5-year-old daughter broke her left arm. So I helped out playing the left hand part while she played the right hand. The look on her face at the end of the song is why I love teaching piano!
