Adele - Rolling in the Deep

Adele is quite a popular singer between my pupils, so, some of them asked me to make a transcription of "Rolling in the Deep". I took the liberty to rearrange some parts, to cut out some and to simplify the rhythm, but I kept most of the elements that makes it recognizable.

This is targeted at beginners with a modest ambitus and resistance. I work on that with pupils of 10-14 years old who play trumpet for one or two years.
Here's how it sounds:
And here is a backing track so you can play on top of it:

You may download the music sheet as PDF, or in MuseScore format, so you can edit, transpose, transcribe and customize it to your own needs.

Some information from Wikipedia: "Rolling in the Deep" is a song recorded by British singer Adele for her second studio album, 21. The song was written by Adele and Paul Epworth. The singer herself describes it as a "dark blues-y gospel disco tune".
The song reached number one in 11 countries and the top five in many more regions. It was Adele's first number-one song in the United States, reaching the top spot on many Billboard charts, including the Billboard Hot 100 where it was number one for seven weeks.
Here's the original version:
