Seasonal Music

It is always fun to have a few songs ready for Christmas or Halloween, or whatever!  Here are some fun options from some of my favorite sites.

Halloween:   Play your normal pieces in minor!   Or check out this one (early intermediate):  http://www.music-for-music-teachers.com/support-files/tabithas-de-boself-corrected.pdf    or find a copy of Hall of the Mountain King (Grieg) or other favorite.  Here is some sheet music that we have enjoyed over the years:  http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/Black-Cat-Shuffle/310955

Thanksgiving songs:   I suggest some simple hymns for Thanksgiving.  Usually we don’t get too elaborate for Thanksgiving because we are spending more time on getting Christmas stuff ready.  Two of my favorites include the Dutch “We Gather Together” (check out MakingMusicFun.net for sheet music) and any arrangement of Copeland’s Simple Gifts.

Christmas music:  I can’t do justice to all the great Christmas options out there in one single post, but I will suggest looking for some duets and starting before Halloween!   More suggestions later!
