Holiday Songs


The holiday season is officially here and it's time to supplement our Suzuki repertoire with some of our favorite holiday songs. After all, tis the season to be jolly!

For my Twinklers: "Jingle Bells" in A Major

CC C CC C CE A BC

DD D DD C C CC B B C B E

CC C CC C CE A BC

DD D DDC C CC E E D B A

*Rhythm note: Note names that are close together are shorts, all others are longs. It's a little tricky to write down in this short hand, but I'm sure that once you start playing it, it'll make total sense.

*Fingerings in this piece:

A = open A string

B = 1st finger on A

C = C-sharp (2 on the tape on the A String)

D = 3rd finger on A

E = open E string

For my Book 1 Students (Those working on G Major scale, the Minuets, and more)

You're getting "Jingle Bells" in G Major with the opening. If you're working on note-reading as well, you get the added bonus assignment of writing out the piece :)

Rhythmically, this is tricky to notate in a blog, so I'm just going to include the lyrics of each line to keep track.

Fingerings: Notes in black are on the D string, notes in red are on the A. Notes in green are open E (or can be 4th finger on the A string).

F = F-sharp, a regular 2nd finger (on the tape).

C = C-natural, a low 2nd finger on the A string.
