Greensleeves free Christmas sheet music for beginning piano

Of course, "Greensleeves" wasn't always the Christmas song, "What Child is This." Perhaps the English-speaking world is the only place you will find this a familiar song during the holidays.

This brilliant free arrangement for beginners, below, comes from Tabitha in the Netherlands. I love the way she has contrived to get all the harmonies in there without needing to change hand positions.

This version of the Greensleeves melody is easier to play than it is to read, because of the sharps and flats.  

Sharps are tricky enough for beginners, and flats too, but when you mix them together in the same song or even in the same measure, piano students sometimes do crazy things!

Like what, you say?  I've seen them turn the white notes to black keys, and the black keys to white!

Fortunately, in this free Christmas sheet music arrangement we meet only one black note at a time.  

Still, this piece may benefit from a teacher-student duet: trade off the hands with each other!  And ask if your pupil can figure out what the chord harmonies are...

Can they spot "Little" B flat?  The broken chord A, descending?  

Hardest of all, perhaps, the D minor inversion which comes in measure two!

I also have a duet version of Greensleeves available -- kids can play the rich-sounding secondo as soon as they can play broken chords.

Encourage your students to use the pedal for a rich sound, lifting every two measures (for the majority of the music).

Enjoy Tabitha's beautiful version of Greensleeves!
