..... a great novelty Christmas song 

Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer

 

Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer -  by Jane Barnes and David Leslie Froggatt (easier)

Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer is probably one of children's most popular Christmas songs.  Gene Autry's recording of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer became the Number 1 song first week of 1950.

I made two arrangements of this Christmas Favorite. This is the easier of the two arrangements I made. It is a spunky arrangement providing accented chords, shifting moods and other challenges. It is at the mid-intermediate level of difficulty.

The trickier arrangement can be found at: https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/21682506?aff_id=537113

Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer is great for recitals and family gatherings as well as a great way to have students prepare for the holidays.

..... a great novelty song 

Sam, You Made the Pants Too Long


Sam, You Made the Pants Too Long is a very humorous song about a tailor that made a client a perfect outfit except for one minor detail, ..... the pants were too long!!

 

This song follows the pattern of a Recitative-Aria.  The first dozen bars are rather declamatory exclaiming the problem.  This story is immediately elaborated in the shuffle rhythm of the song.

This arrangement tries to capture the humor and irony of the lyrics.  A good performance will require a lot of wit and dynamism.  The Recitative can be done very freely, but the Song (Aria) need to keep a steady rhythm with a lot of punch at the climax points.  Play the middle section of the song in a more relaxed manner and in the final repetition of the main theme be your most expressive.  End strong.

 

This arrangement therefore has a lot of teaching value making students use their imagination in crafting a good interpretation and telling a story.  Sam , You Made the Pants Too Long is a great novelty piece for a number that would especially stand out at a recital.  It's also a great piece for a social gathering.

Charade - Henry Mancini
 

Henry Mancini gives us a haunting theme for the film Charade.  This arrangement is late intermediate/early advanced.  It is musically sophisticated enough where adults and amateur players would find it enjoyable to play and interpret.

This arrangement would be suitable for recitals and social gatherings as well as personal enjoyment.  It's also a great piece for teaching students the wealth of great music found in films and acquaints with one of the best film composers of the mid to late 20th century.

The Entertainer - Scott Joplin

..... from the Classic Film - The Sting

The Entertainer


The Entertainer is one of Scott Joplin's most popular piano rags.  This simple arrangement in the mid to late elementary level. It is 2 pages long and presents the "main theme" of the rag. 

 

This arrangement incorporates mainly two part writing throughout with parallel sixths and a single note bass line.  There are also a few simple intervals that "beefs up" the sound in a key moments in the arrangement.

This arrangement therefore has a lot of teaching value making students aware of what they should expect as they move into the intermediate levels of performance.  The Entertainer is a great piece for any beginning students repertoire!

Great for family gatherings ...  recitals ... auditions and overall cultural enrichment!
