Each year I buy my students a Christmas book at their level or maybe just a little below their level. I want them to be able to learn them quickly, except for my older students who want to work on something longer.
One of my students had a book without Silent Night, so I made this for him. He was hesitant about the dotted quarter notes, but I told him to play like he sings it, and then it was fine. I have this little ditty that I sing, “The rhythm is the way the words go, yeah.”
Actually, I have plenty of time to teach him how to count, but for now I just want him to enjoy the seasonal music we all love.
When I made the art work, it had interesting textures that didn’t show up when I made it so tiny. But at least it adds a little color.
I have a Primer/Level 1 version on the Christmas music page, if this one is too hard.
Enjoy the season!
