Easy Christmas Songs for Piano
Go Tell It On the Mountain

Easy Christmas songs for piano - Go Tell It On the Mountain in three arrangements, and three different keys.  There is an easy Middle C position version, and two versions with a "boogie" feeling left hand part. Download them for your students, FREE!


Here is a nice casual rehearsal video with Jewel and a backup choir (short ad to start -  sorry!):


And here is the easy Middle C arrangement for beginners.  This can be turned into a duet by using C, F, and G chords with a boogie pattern like Wabash Cannonball!

Chances are good that your young students have heard this song before, which will aid them in interpreting the rhythm of the melody.  Otherwise you'll have a bit of counting to do - but with the swing rhythm, that will be fun!

The thumbs are NOT sharing Middle C, so a little right hand/left hand work is helpful... I like to close the piano lid, hold both hands above the lid, then tap or "play" the tune on the lid with the appropriate hand as we sing the words (with the whole hand, not the fingers).

Now here are two nearly identical arrangements, except the second one has a few filled chords in the right hand, making it a great deal harder.

You can find lots of different verses for this Christmas spiritual - I've included three of them.  This early, very fun video of a young Peter, Paul, and Mary has many verses - and lots of energy:
