Great for family get-togethers, too!

Middle C Position! Great for families or a first trio!

Up on the Housetop is a very easy piano trio arrangement for three students at one piano. This arrangement is the easiest trio I have written and I wrote it specifically for trio beginners. Since I am a teacher, I put in everything a teacher needs to make this fun and easy to teach:

  • Middle C 5-finger position in all parts with ample finger numbers.
  • It uses treble and bass clefs in all 3 parts. No tricky “same staff” reading.
  • Finger numbers at the beginning of each staff in ALL versions.
  • Every measure is numbered in ALL versions.
  • Big staves.

Teachers often will add repeats in an easy trio performance because they are so short. So I wrote a repeat into the score to save you time and to give your trio more of a chance to shine! The bonus slow audio practice mp3 file includes the repeat. 

Your files will include:

  • A director’s score with all the parts grouped together.
  • 3 paper-saving individual scores for high, middle, and low parts.
  • A traditional trio score for ease of reading at the piano. (Three students read off of two pages at a time.)
  • An instruction sheet on how to put together the traditional score.
  • A color cover page is found in the traditional trio score.
  • Bonus! Slow practice mp3 audio file.

This is a studio license, so a single teacher can make unlimited copies.*

    This is fun for elementary students to play. The large print and abundance of finger numbers make it much easier for young students. Thank you Susan!
