Any piano players here??? Looking for some "modern" sheet music for my son.

My son is going to be 15 next month is a very talented musician. Mainly plays classical music. However, did learn a couple of pop songs such as bohemian rhapsody. Looking for some sheet music (or books) with rock / pop songs that are good for a moderate to advanced piano player. Guess the wife being locked in the house for two weeks we are both looking for some new challenges for him to work on and "hoping" get change it up a little bit. ;)

How is his theory understanding? I have quite a bit of digitized real books that are "lead sheets". Standards, jazz, pop. You would still have to print it out, or open on a iPad to read.

This means they have the melody, chords, and lyrics (if the song has them). It's what musicians use to invent their own "arrangements" and playing.

He could noodle around with tunes and see how to expand on his own understanding. PM me if this is of interest and we can work out details.

If I could play piano beyond Mary Had A Little Lamb.... I would love to learn some Elton John songs:

I would suggest that he start working his way through some jazz theory books so he's not so dependent on sheet music. John Mehegan is a good place to start.

Not modern, but I wish I could play this. And read the sheet music for it.
