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? Free beginner sheet music "Cowboy Song" has a repeating left hand boogie chord, and solid right hand chords for a full sound. This printable piano music is most appropriate in the second year of piano playing, for most students. Please note that all comments are moderated, and will not appear until I have approved them.
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! Together, students MAY have trouble, initially, bringing left and right hands together on beat 3 of measure 3. Also, IF YOU ARE ASKING FOR MUSIC THAT IS NOT IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN, YOUR REQUEST WILL BE IGNORED.
Thank you so much for your hard work getting these on the web, you have made many children very happy!! 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. I let them try to put it HT (hands together) right away, but if they have trouble coordinating the hands, I tell them to just go to the end of line 1, or even just to the end of measure 4, for all of the 1st or even 2nd week.And if they have a little trouble, I say, "Can you pat your head and rub your tummy at the same time?" I demonstrate, and watch them do the same. Must be all the Westerns with the same loping kind of rhythm our ears have come to identify as the Cowboy sound!


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. Of course, not all can perform this feat of coordination very gracefully, and I tell them that over time it will improve!
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!
One suggestion for actual lesson time: as you play along with them, tell them to slow the notes down as they approach the tricky part to SUPER SLOW, "freezing" the hands as they meet.
