I’ve finally moved all of my free Christmas music from my old site to this site so it will be easier to find. Now when I make a new arrangement, I will post it here and all the Christmas music will be together. 🙂 The levels range from pre-reading to late elementary.
If you try to find one of my old arrangements and you can’t find it, all you have to do is select the “Free” link above, then select “Newer Free Resources,” then “Christmas Music.” It is listed in order of difficulty. (My store has the Christmas trios, if you are looking for those.)
Some of these I revised in various ways, but after a while I had to stop, or I was never going to get it all moved! Hope your students enjoy my little Christmas sheets!
Today I am posting the link where you can find all my Thanksgiving games and worksheets. There is a fun music bingo game there if you have groups between now and Thanksgiving. I hope you enjoy some of these.

If you’re a long time follower of this blog, you can find some legacy material in “Older Free Resources.” However, as time permits, I update the old material and move it to “Newer Free Resources.” If you still can’t find what you want, the fastest way to find it is to do a Google search with my name and the name of what you want. An example is: Susan Paradis Thanksgiving Bingo.
I have a lot of easy sheet music that can be used for Thanksgiving on my website. All of these are primer (beginning level and on the staff in 5-finger position) unless noted. They are short and can be used for sight-reading. Some have duets and can be used in programs. These are all free downloads I made for my students. You don’t have to sign up or subscribe to anything to enjoy them. I use these to remind students why we celebrate Thanksgiving and how much we have to be thankful for.
Every year I write a piano trio for my students to play at their December group lesson. They are always fairly easy so that busy students can learn them quickly and have a lot of fun with them. Older students can sight read them and less experienced players can practice them in advance.
Today I am adding my piano trio arrangement of Jingle Bells for Three (17 pages $7.99) to the store section of my website. This is a studio license, so a single teacher may print unlimited copies each year. Buying trios digitally allows the music file to include scores in various configurations so the teacher can print they want. This file includes individual parts, a teacher’s (conductor’s) score, a traditional piano trio score, and the cover.
Jingle Bells for Three is really easy because I wanted something for my youngest group. We started practicing it in November and the group lesson was in December. They were really proud of themselves. I had a few students who had just started, so they provided the jingle bell accompaniment. I had some families use it for their Christmas family gatherings. I even have parents who read a little music come in to the lesson for an impromptu rehearsal. It is such a joy to play together just for the fun of it!
