I am going to walk you through how to play this song, and in about an hour of practice, you will be ready to do a video of yourself on your smart phone and send it to your mother for Mother’s Day.
Yes, I have used this song in the past, but this time, I want you to create video of it for Mother’s Day and send it to her. 🙂
The last video is a special dedication to the mother of the student in this video. It’s a perfect example of why “perfection” is overrated – this imperfect performance will touch your heart and a special gift for anyone to receive.
I hope this inspires you to have fun on the piano and know that perfection isn’t the goal, having fun and touching lives is more important!

Thank you very much for the song Love Me Tender , its my favorite. Just received it and will try to play it. Am still studying your lessons and will try it soon. I’m 54 years old but still wants to learn piano if its not yet late. Thank again and God Bless you and your family. Bye, Farah
I am a grandma and never had the time or money to learn the piano. At my age I thought I had left it too late and wouldn’t be able to grasp the piano or be able to read music. I am only in my first week and I am over whelmed about how I am progressing. I make time every morning before I get out of my pj’s to practice. This stops me from being side tracked and going outside. I have my husbands 60th birthday coming up next year and hope to be able to play confidently to him as the grandchildren sing.
Thank you for simplify lessons on learning the piano
I Pass this song and I download the sheet music Very easy to play

Hi Lisa. Thank you for the love me tender song to learn, it is my Mothers favourite song, so I am trying to play it for her. When I do play it, mum can understand what I am playing, so it must sound ok. ha! ha! I love your easy way of putting things and the picture and writing is nice and big for me to see too when I stand my sheets up on the piano. I started to play piano about 4yrs ago, but I just went off it because I didn’t feel that I was getting anywhere, I guess I was probably not practicing enough. I know it is practice, practice, practice. I also have short fingers, but with your practice warm ups that you said to do, has helped me ALOT. Thank you, Victoria xxx
Hi Lisa, you are doing a smart job in providing music notes to your students. Most other online teachers don´t. I live in the city of Mozart, Salzburg though I could not afford a piano teacher. Happy America you can.
Thanks to you Lisa for sending LOVE ME TENDER!
I’ve learnt how to play it with much pleasure.
I hope you could send me another easy song to play.
I enjoy a lot while playing it.

Thank you Lisa, I am in the process of purchasing a piano or keyboard so I can begin my lessons.
Thank you so much for coming across my path.
Hi Lisa, thanks for the wonderful easy lesson, my husband actually found you on you tube giving us some free lessons which we value very much, just learnt to play “Love Me Tender” I am a big Elvis fan and especially today 16th August is his death anniversary, you made my day, hope to learn some more music from you, keep up the good work and thanks again. Love from Western Australia
Priscilla Deepak says
I actually learned piano for one year and then stopped learning cause we had some transportation problems. But your online teaching has inspired me a lot. I suggest that you keep senting me more songs. If you know the song “Light of the world, you step down…….’ please teach me to learn that song. I really love it.
thank you for the free lessons i hope i will be learning keyboard finally.
Just about finished with the free lessons and am going to order your program. Thank you very much, you are a wonderful teacher, just perfect for me. I just became a gramdma and learning to play the piano was on my “bucket list” so I luckily began with you and am doing great, I’m going to continue with you. Thanks again and you have a wonderful family and I’m praying for your son.

I also sing along while I play it. Thank you for these wonderful lessons. Learning to play the piano is on my bucket list. I don’t have a way to record me playing the song or I would. Thank you so much for these lessons. Please continue sending us these instant songs. They are wonderful! God Bless

Gerard Fernandes says
I practiced the 5 parts this morning since I did not get time on the weekend.
Your teaching style is amazing. I did take the oath to count Loud and it works wonders.
I feel the tick-tock count is better that 1,2,3,4.
I just listened to your instructions on Love me Tender and am very confident that I will be able to play it. But I could not exit without say a word of gratitude and thanks.
Thanks for all the sharing and God Bless
Rosalyn Hilaire says

Tamie Robinson says
Love the free lessons, and learning this song so far…. I am still practicing. Very Fun, and Lisa you are terrific at teaching the piano. You make is seem very relaxing and easy, even though it takes alot of practice!!! Thank you….
I am just starting to learn and that is because I found your lessons. The five introduction lessons have been very easy to understand, so I am very hopeful now that I CAN learn, following your instructions. I have wanted to do this for a very long time and have always been fearful that I couldn’t learn how. I am 67 and when I saw the videos with your grandma I now have the hope that I too can learn. Thanks for the simple step by step instructions.
Hye Teacher Lisa,
Thank so much for song Love Me Tender . I really enjoy it . ^_^

Thanks for the Sheet Music of songs I know. As these are easy to play for us beginners and sound excellent.
This helps me so much more because playing a tune/song makes it more fun. You end up practising for longer. Thanks Lisa.

Brunilda Davila says
I Already pass the free Lessons and One of the song
that I learned was Love me Tender, and Now I can
play this song smoothly. Is a process but my tip
to your success in this song is take your time.
and enjoy your journey .
That was result of your wonderful explanation and that was really amazing for me how you could find that I have played one wrong note !
I understood and corrected my mistake thanks to your excellent clarification.
Now I can play a beautiful and popular melody and I am very excited .
and another question : Did you recieve my email to firstname.lastname@example.org ?
Can I send my emails to this address ?
Thank you so much
Your recording was beautifully done, I am impressed with the fluency and timing you achieved in such a short time. Wow!
There is one note that sounds like it needs to be corrected. It is the #4 on the second
page (when you are in F position) that did not sound correct. Your #4 finger should be playing
a black note. Look at the keyboard diagram on the Instant Play sheet for F position
to see what I am talking about.
Other than that, it was a beautiful performance!
I sent that recording to this address : email@example.com
And this is another link to download :
I hope there will be no problem .
Thanks for your reply
Hi Lisa ;
Thank you so much for this beautiful lesson , I really enjoyed this .
I have no piano but I have a small keyboard with only 32 keys ! and for playing this melody I had to use other octaves , ( I mean right side octaves for both hands !)
I recorded that and sent to your email address and also uploaded to this link :
Please tell me your opionions about that.
Thank You and Happy valentine !
Thanks So much Lisa Ma’am..
Its a nice music..I know you have made it an easy method..But for me it was easy to read the notes….
Have a Happy Valentines Day..!!!
I hope you Enjoy It…
Thank you for sending me my free gift, Love Me Tender instant play song. I didn’t think it was going to work, but I tried it and its amazing! I can’t wait to play it for my sweetie! I am just floored at how easy it was to learn.
I started with the hands position and then listened to the audio of Mr. Gross. I followed it and it sounded great. Then I listened to your instructions and wrote down the fingers’ numbers and tried that, that worked even better, learned the words to the song and now I am playing it and practicing. I did try to follow the sheet music, but I became confused when the notes drop at the bottom of the staff, I still dont understand that bit, and I didn’t do the left hand, you know I am having a problem, but this second attempt at the left hand is getting a little better, hitting the same notes on the right, and singing along with that hand. Needs more practice I suppose. I am so thrilled! My sweetie will be astounded. I am adding “Love Me Tender” to a private concert on Valentines Day!
Hi everyone, this is Lisa again!
I would be fun for everyone to hear someone’s performance of Love Me Tender! If anyone has the capability, you can post an mp3 link here on the blog!
My wife got me this keyboard as a gift for valentine and I am going to impress her by playing this first song on valentine tomorrow. Its really easy. Thanks Lisa. The audio is a real guide for people like me who otherwise do not understand the instructions
Thank You So Much. That was so cool. I impressed my family with Love Me Tender. That was fun. Can’t wait to learn more.
Hi Everyone! This is Lisa… I am enjoying reading all your posts. I am pretty new at blogging, and this is really fun!
Just want to wish you a Happy Valentines & say thank you for this sheet music. I’ve been playing by ear for years now & Love me Tender has always been a favorite of mine. Now if I could just strenghthen my left hand a little more. I know I’ll never be a Billy Joel or Elton John but your lessons have been fun & most helpful. Much Appreciation!
Tony Bautista says
Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your family!
Tony Bautista says
Despite my swollen right pinky from a bike accident, I got to play Love Me Tender, one of my old favorites, right off the bat.
My wife found me on the piano yesterday afternoon. Some surprise!
I am enjoying the lessons and learning so much!
BTW, I’m 59 with no formal piano lessons. I learned to play the sax on my own and now the piano, with your help.
Thanks a lot!
Thank you teacher.
Happy valantine’s day to you also.
I already studied your lessons and I am capable of reading all lessons easily, but still I cannot understand the sound of the keys by hearing.
yours lovingly, sajini
David Bjorling says
Thanks Ms. Lisa,
I am 69 and have always wanted to learn to play the piano but never really took the time. Looking forwad to learning to play this instant song, Love Me Tender.
Albert and Tempie Williams says
First, we wish you, your family and all your students a Happy Valentine’s Day! This is Tempie here.
I’m excited because, I plan to play ‘Love Me Tender’ for my husband Albert for Valentine’s Day! He is my inspiration and makes everyday a Valentine day for me. It is he that has the true musical passion and has been teachng me. We are both published authors, poets, musicians, singers, etc. He is way ahead of me musically but I’m beginning to have a passion and am learning slowly. When I just heard Mike on the recording mention his daugther is in Memphis and he is wearing his Memphis hat, it sparked me as well.
I was born in Memphis in the USA and now live in England with my husband, Albert. Also, I have met Elvis Presley in Memphis and am a devoted fan and it would just warm my heart to be able to even attempt to play a simple version of , ‘Love Me Tender!’
Thank you for providing free lessons, so beginners like me can learn. Keep up your great work.
Albert and Tempie
patricia sykes says
thank you for the valentine song……i just want you to know that i am really happy that i have you for a teacher.
i never thought i would actually learn notes and PLAY them. what a pleasure…….and you stay in touch.
YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL VALENTINES DAY!!
Thanks very much for such a clear explanation of this song. I just had like 20 minutes practising it and it sounds really good. I started playing the piano a month ago I think.
I studied your free lessons and I have studied by my own the mayor, minor, diminished and augmented chords and I am glad to be able to play a new song.
