Beautiful, The Carole King Musical
The inspiring true story of Carole King’s remarkable journey from teenage songwriter to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
THIS TITLE IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR LIMITED RELEASE IN CERTAIN COUNTRIES AND IS NOT AVAILABLE IN THE USA AT THIS TIME.
The licensed orchestration by MTI is based on the Original Broadway Production.
This show is orchestrated to be player-conducted from the Keyboard 1 book. It has 3 keyboard parts all of which have programming.
Keyboard 1 is mostly all piano. It has less than 5 total patches and can be played exclusively on the piano if desired. KeyboardTEK is proud to offer the original programming as heard in the original Broadway production and the cast album. Through a partnership with the programmer Billy Jay Stein and Hiro Ida and their team at Strange Cranium, this will be the standard programming files that are available for licensing in your production.
Keyboards 2 and 3 are not as difficult as Keyboard 1 and can be played by an experienced intermediate/advanced player. There are many patches in these two books made up primarily of electric pianos, strings, organ, mallet percussion, and auxiliary percussion.

Before she was hit-maker Carole King — she was Carole Klein, a spunky, young songwriter from Brooklyn with a unique voice. From the chart-topping hits she wrote for the biggest acts in music to her own life-changing, trailblazing success with Tapestry, Beautiful takes you back to where it all began — and takes you on the ride of a lifetime.
Featuring such unforgettable classics as “You’ve Got a Friend”, “One Fine Day”, “So Far Away”, “Take Good Care of My Baby”, “Up on the Roof”, “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling”, “Will You Love Me Tomorrow”, and “Natural Woman”, this Tony® and Grammy® Award-winning musical phenomenon is filled with the songs you remember — and a story you’ll never forget.
