Karen Marshall and David Blackwell have created some superb, FREE carol arrangements and Christmas lesson resources to accompany Get Set! Piano Christmas Crackers, which publisher Collins Music has generously agreed to host here on Pianodao!
A Message from Karen Marshall:
Dear Pianodao readers,
David Blackwell and myself were really touched last year by all the lovely feedback and oomments about Get Set! Christmas Crackers from teachers across the UK and beyond. It was lovely to see practice advent calendars beautifully coloured and also hear about how the additional free on-line carols had been appreciated.
We are very grateful to all the teachers and students who have supported this new book and to say thank you we have provided another free carol and two additional resources for Christmas 2019. The 12 days of Christmas appears in very few Christmas books so Karen has written one, very accessible, and perfect for Grade 1 pianists. It’s also written so it can be sung, and includes lots of teaching opportunities from pedal use to time signature changes and simple hand shifts.
In addition we have two new ‘colour-me’ resources. Both designed around Christmas trees, children can record carols they are learning throughout the festive period 6 or 12 ready for a mini concert (if they wish to do one).
We are as ever very grateful to Andrew Eales for providing a home for these resources and sincerely hope Pianodao readers and their students thoroughly enjoy these new resources.
Happy festive music making!
Karen Marshall and David Blackwell.
