The Chipmunk Song (Christmas, Christmas Time is Near) by Ross Bagdasarian

The Chipmunk Song -- Christmas Christmas Time is Near is probably the most popular song associated with "Alvin and the Chipmunks". This student arrangement is in a waltz rhythm and gives the student a chance to make the piano "sing". The left hand chords never stretch beyond a 7th. It is also a great selection to give to a student in preparation of Christmas but could be learned any time throughout the year.

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.

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.

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

A Holly Jolly Christmas - Johnny Marks

 

This intermediate level arrangement of A Holly Jolly Christmas is an excellent choice if your wanting an arrangement that contains more advanced harmonies for your intermediate students.  It has some simple stride techniques without the wide jumps often associated with arrangements for advanced players, so this arrangement is a great stepping stone to helping students begin to approach this style of writing.  The middle section has students splitting accompaniment chords between their hands written at an easier student level.

I think you will find this arrangement very useful for giving students music that's interesting as well as music that something that reflects the Christmas season. 
The music is happy, bright and colorful.


I think students will find this arrangement useful for family gatherings, Christmas parties, personal enjoyment and something their friends will enjoy hearing.

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!   by Sammy Cahn, Jule Styne

 

My aim on this arrangement of Let It Snow! was to make an artistic arrangement at an easy technical level. 

 

Each time the main theme enters it is arranged differently; first legato, then staccato and finally in four part harmony.  Staccato chords often support the melody. 

 

I think this arrangement that students will enjoy working out the challenges and will feel rewarded for their efforts.  

This arrangement is suitable especially for social gatherings and Christmas parties. It would also make a novel recital piece as well as a piece for personal enjoyment. 

I think adults would also enjoy this arrangement.

I can this arrangement a great addition to Christmas Parties, family gatherings, talent shows, recitals and any type of Christmas gathering where music is shared.
