Jingle Bells sheet music is one of those need-to-know pieces for beginner piano players.This free sheet has so many things going for it, both for the student, and from the perspective of the teacher! Why is this such a great song for beginners?First of all, Jingle Bells is such a familiar tune, that even when it is not the Christmas season, little kids are often very excited to learn it. Download Christmas song with chord symbols for beginner piano studentsBut there's no left hand!I want my students to learn early on how to read chord symbols, so they can play lead sheets. The very easiest way to add LHThe first week or so, if they already have the experience of putting LH chords to a RH melody, you might suggest that they use just a C chord the whole song, with no chord change, as in Indian Dance.
Do you have a funny story about this music, or does it remind you of something you'd like to share with other readers? Tell them the song will sound prettier if they play it up high on the piano, so that it does sound "more like bells".


I've already printed several for my children, including the Pretty Little Horses TAB and Carol of the Bells for piano. For all the reasons you explain on the site itself--this is exactly what piano teachers need! Then add the secondary chordsAfter a week or so like this, you can start adding in the "G pinch" chord (the G7 made with the f & g, using the 2 &1 fingers of the left hand) and the "little F" chord (f & a, again with the 2 & 1 fingers of the left hand). I am a piano teacher in New Orleans, LA and in the process of putting together my own curriculum and recordings.
So, depending on their familiarity with chords, you might be better off with a plain sheet. The G pinch chord is easy, especially after playing Mary Had a Little Lamb, but beginners have a hard time with the Little F chord, because it necessitates the stretch of the thumb.


Or, start in the very first week asking THEM to play the chords for YOUR right-hand melody. Sometimes, after a struggle, I just let young pianists substitute the G7 chord for the F chords, and we come back to the F chord later.Have fun with this well-loved Christmas music!
