Free Christmas Music for Beginning Piano Players
My kids have been asking for more Christmas music to play on the piano. I went to two of my favorite music-related websites and saw both of them have free Christmas music for beginning piano players. Some of it is perfect for DD who is now on her second year of piano and some of it is great for ED who just started learning piano this fall.
The first website is by Susan Paradis. You’ll find songs like Jolly Old Saint Nicholas, Deck the Halls and a couple different versions of Silent Night if you browse through the music tab on SusanParadis.com.
Another thing I love about Susan’s website is she has various notes and rhythm games that she offers for free such as this cute page to draw in the notes-Draw the Ornament:
You might want to check out some of her Christmas Games, Music and Printables here and Christmas and Seasonal Music Printables here. There are a ton of wonderful music resources! Thank you SO much for sharing your hard work, Susan!
I also found some easy Christmas piano music over at Layton Music on the Primary Music page. I found simplified piano pieces such as Oh, Come All Ye Faithful, Away in a Manger and Joy to the World.
D’Net has a cute Musical Christmas Tree File Folder Game to match the letters A, G, C with either the note, the keyboard or the key signature to the ornament on the tree. Thanks D’Net!
We also purchased Teaching Little Fingers to Play Christmas Carols: A Christmas Book for the Earliest Beginner (affiliate link) and the kids have been learning some easy pieces out of this book.

I put together a 10-week curriculum to help the kids learn to read music and to learn the various music symbols (forte, crescendo, flats, sharps… etc.) There are links to tons of free activities we’re using this semester!
