How to Demi Lovato — Anyone sheet music

Anyone is composed in a binary verse-chorus without any motif modulations.
This song follows the traditional model for the pop form. Its rhythmic basis is sustained throughout, so the LH’s principal duty will be to provide a rock-steady footing.

The score is ritten for piano and vocalist duo. If you don't want to sing — play the vocal line in the right hand.

Piano Playing Method

Accuracy in articulation are essential for playing Anyone piano sheet music.
Your tone should be warm and gentle. It should impart the lilting feel of a lullaby. Figuratively speaking, you should communicate a sense of comfort, ease, or pleasantness. To sound quietly, keep your fingers close to the keys and do some firm practice from the knuckles.
The articulation in this piece is tricky because it alternates between legato and staccato.
Accent every note, varying the accents each time you play. Once played lightly and up to speed, the ornament should flow naturally.
It’s worth trying out this technique for the entire song.

Take note of the crescendo/decrescendo markings in order to make your piano sound more noticeable or prominent; to emphasize the Demi Lovato's lyrics. Begin your diminuendo by gradually playing the passage more softly.

Among the hardest facets of piano playing is controlling a lightness of attack, and when coupled with playing at a faster speed, a reliable warm-hearted leggiero touch must rank as among the most prized piano skills.

The patterns in the left hand can become repetitive if not coloured imaginatively and played with rhythmic stamina.

Right Hand

Listen to the actual track Anyone as you begin to learn the arrangement, in order to balance parts in left and right hands.

In playing any piano transcription of a song, the aim is to give the impression of a singer (the RH) that is being accompanied by a sensitive pianist (the LH). Imagine a duet between a band and a singer, so color the two hands differently. Coordinating the parts may take some time to organise convincingly.

The RH here plays a melody (topline) and the LH provides some harmony (accompaniment). First separate the melody from the accompaniment in the LH. Try singing the melody as you play, so you can mentally separate the topline from the accompaniment in the LH.

Practise slowly at first, giving a distinct emphasis on the topline while playing the accompaniment as gently and as evenly as possible. To begin with, play the melody line by itself to develop a confident mastery.

Don’t forget to bring dynamic colour to your performance by quickly moving from piano to forte; play every new part with different volume level.

Left Hand

After getting familiar with the RH, focus on the LH. The LH is generally soft throughout.

Avoid tension in the wrist and hand (a danger with repeated patterns) by releasing the muscles swiftly.
Practise the LH alone here to ensure a rich and mellow bass.
While it might seem counterintuitive to use the left thumb to reach down for single bass notes, it ensures a smooth, decisive downward progression. Playing trills in the LH is often best achieved using the thumb.


Carefully follow the pedalling markings.
