Christmas is one of those times in the year when having a few party pieces up our sleeves is particularly important – and of course family and friends are often keen to hear us play their seasonal favourites, so it’s worth adding those into the Active Repertoire mix over the next two months!
With this in mind, here’s a special Christmas gift to Pianodao readers – a Christmas Repertoire Sheet which can be used alongside your and your students’ standard Active Repertoire Sheet.
Christmas Repertoire Sheet 2018 [PDF Download]
The Christmas Repertoire sheet can of course be used how you like, but my own suggestions are shown on the Sheet itself, and will hopefully be clear to those taking part in the ongoing Active Repertoire Challenge.
As always, the choice is with each player. And however you use the Christmas Repertoire sheets, I hope that it will make a positive contribution to your piano journey over the next two months!
Looking for ideas of good seasonal sheet music publications? Try here:
- The Pianodao Christmas 2017 Sheet Music Roundup
These recommendations all still apply!
- Get Set! Piano Christmas Crackers
Suitable for younger learners, but there are also some great FREE sheet music downloads here on Pianodao!
- The Christmas Piano Anthology from Faber Music “significantly raises the bar, instantly establishing itself as the new “must-have” Christmas music book.” Read the review here.
With preparations for Christmas concerts, shows and services under way for many piano players, it is tempting to leave our other Active Repertoire to one side while we focus on festive favourites. That is something we may regret come January, when we find that our favourite repertoire pieces have slipped!
It’s a good idea to keep those Active Repertoire pieces going, even if we reduce to playing them once a week while we focus on Seasonal music.
Wishing readers all the joys of the Season!
