Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer
Piano Solo & Duet
Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer piano duet or solo: engaging arrangements that are fun to play and sing along with!
The duet primo, top of page 1:
It's amazing how many children know the lyrics to this music! Because of that familiarity, you will find a lot of takers for this song.
As you can see, the fingering I've recommended here places the thumbs SIDE-BY-SIDE, but close to Middle C, as is common with beginner piano pieces. Because the reach of the right hand is all the way up to "A," they will need to place their right hand thumb on a "D."

Where's the rest of the music?
I'm not showing you all of the pages because this music is still under copyright! If you wish to acquire this sheet music, I'll have to direct you over to SheetMusicPlus.com to find both these arrangements, duet and solo.
The Secondo, top of page 1:
This secondo part is FUN to play. I'm always glad when a student chooses Rudolph, because then I get the pleasure of playing this with someone!
If you should purchase the duet ($5.00), I will make 50 cents.
Kids like to add the echo lyrics
"All of the other reindeer (REINDEER!) used to laugh and call him names (LIKE PINOCCHIO!). They never let poor Rudolph (RUDOLPH!) join in any reindeer games!)
There's a bit (though not all) of the "echo" lyrics support in the piano Secondo part...

This is the perfect easy start for little pianists.
And when they start reading white-key notes on the staff, this is a fun easy resource to say each week, "Choose a new black-key song at home this week and figure it out to show me next lesson!" They will be spending more time at the piano.
