Today’s video is a tutorial of O Holy Night for the piano. This version is appropriate for early intermediate students around a grade 3 level.
Today is the final installment of our Christmas sheet music blog series, and we’re ending with a bang. I really like God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman because it’s got this intensity that many Christmas songs don’t have, and that can be fun. It’s got some drive and oomph.
To continue our Christmas music party that was kicked off with Away in a Manger, today we’ll look at Deck the Halls sheet music, again in two versions – a simplified treble/chords version, and a fully-arranged version. Sheet music is linked below. Enjoy!
Now that we’ve hit December, it’s time to start rolling out the Christmas music! I love Christmas music, and this is one of my favorite parts of the teaching year. Somehow I haven’t gotten sick of Jingle Bells through all these years of teaching because I just get so excited.
Today’s video is Away in a Manger sheet music, with 2 versions. One is just right hand and chords – this could be called the simple version. I would also like to call it the improv version, since it gives you room to invent your own LH part while using the chords as a template. The second version is a full piano version – it’s a little more challenging, with a lot of movement in the left hand and voicing in the right.
