Lots of Christmas Music

Free Christmas Music

Easy Christmas Music

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!

Jingle Bells for Three- an Elementary Trio

Jingle Bells for Three Trio

Jingle Bells for Three $7.99

A piano trio for 6 hands and one piano

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!

Here is the last ornament worksheet I will have time to make this year. Thanks very much to Peggy for proofing it for me!

FYI, if you have some students who are looking for Hanukkah worksheets, I made some a few years ago and you might want to check them out.

More Ornament Notes

Today I am posting another Christmas interval worksheet. I made it to help students recognize seconds, thirds, and fifths.  This worksheet words very well on an iPad also, because all the student has to do is add a check to the correct answer. I think I have time to make another one before group lessons next week that will include all the intervals, so check back.

Also, I want to thank my readers for your wonderful support of my trio arrangement of Carol of the Bells. I am overwhelmed with gratitude! I wrote it because there is a need for simple trios that can be learned with very little practice for a program or group lesson. If your students are playing this I would love it if you would go to my store, select it, and add a review!

FYI, this is my original website. At the top you can select worksheets, games, teacher aids, or music. At the bottom, there are tiny numbers to go to the rest of the pages. I’ve been trying to get my web master to fix that! Be prepared for a lot of scrolling! 🙂
