Really Easy Piano: Christmas Carols

Books | Piano

Publisher: Wise Publications
Format: Sheet Music | Songbook
This Really Easy Piano: Christmas Carols songbook includes twenty-five of the most popular Christmas carols arranged for easy Piano, with lyrics and chord symbols.
 
These seasonal standards are essential playing for all pianists. Familiar to everybody, all the carols included here are sure to welcome the Christmas spirit into the most scrooge-like of people. From classics like Away In A Manger and O Little Town Of Bethlehem to all-time favourites like We Wish You A Merry Christmas and Jingle Bells, the carols are so versatile that they can be enjoyed on your own, or as part of a performance, uniting everyone through the holiday harmonies.
 
Every tune includes lyrics and chord symbols, as well as interesting background notes and a wealth of useful performance hints and tips to ensure you nail each note of the traditional Noel standards. Suggested fingerings are also printed that will help you to play each song as simply as possible. Not only does the book contain all the standard carols you would expect, there are some more unfamiliar ones like Jolly Old Saint Nicholas and I Saw Three Ships, which will keep you learning new pieces and will keep any and all audiences interested. 


The songbook features great arrangements of the festive favourites, with some more challenging sections. This is so that pupils can develop and progress naturally within the context of familiar songs. The Really Easy Piano: Christmas Carols will help beginners to play all of the merry melodies associated with Yuletide, but also works as brilliantly seasonal sight-reading practice for more advanced players.

      This is not 'really easy'. The arranger is obviously out of touch with teaching material! Children need carols that can be learnt in a few weeks (unless they are going to start in October!) so I have used this book for a Grade 3/4 pupil. He was quite miffed to see the book was called 'really easy' when his Gd 2 sister had an easier book just called 'easy'!

      This is a very good value-for-money Christmas carol book. It has lots of well know carols and some less known carols also. I am not sure about the title of the book as it can be misleading. As a piano teacher I did find the carols 'really easy to play' but if I were a grade 3 or below student I think the book would be challenging rather than easy.

      This is ideal for a Grandma like me who only got grade 5 a long time ago-I look forward to getting the family round the piano, not afraid of making too many mistakes! The book is attractive to look at too and has just enough carols in it to give a good choice.

      Very good first carol book, although a few are known to US rather than UK children. Large print plus colour pictures that appeal without being too distracting. Most tunes are spread between the hands so go quite low (G) for singing.

      I agree with the earlier reviewer that this probably isn't 'Really Easy Piano' but all the same it is a really nice book with graded carols so it will last most pupils at least two years/Christmasses. Fingering is good although the printed finger numbers are awfully small! All in all though really nice arrangements and challenging technical aspects which mean that pupils can play carols, progress and learn all at the same time.
