If you have only a couple months to prepare your beginning students for a holiday concert, then Jumpstart First Holiday Concert could be a lifesaver! Designed to be playable for beginners, as well as entertaining for the audience, these arrangements can be performed after only 8-10 lessons. The pitches and rhythms used are limited to those typically covered in the early pages of most method books. Titles include: Away in a Manger; We Three Kings; Il Est Ne (He Is Born); O Come all Ye Faithful; Jingle Bell Jam; The First Noel; Sing We Now of Christmas; Deck the Halls; Up on the Housetop; Hark The Herald Angels Sing. The holiday music is interesting, fun and rewarding, easy enough for beginners to play well, and cool enough to keep them engaged!
