Christmas Sheet Music
The only thing better than listening to holiday music on your stereo is playing it or hearing someone you love play it. I played both the clarinet and piano as a youngster, and I really enjoyed playing holiday music for my family. I know they equally enjoyed listening to it. I wouldn't have been confident or skillful enough to play it by ear the first few years of my training, so sheet music was essential. But Christmas sheet music isn't always the easiest to come by, especially if you live in a place where there are no music stores close by. If you're looking for some great sources online, check out the sites below:
- 8Notes.com: A great site with 196 pieces of free music. All of the music is available online, some is printable, and other pieces can be purchased and then printed. They've got all the most popular material from Jingle Bells and Silent Night to less common songs like Carol of the Bells and From Virgin's Womb.
- Music and You: Another great site with free printable sheet music and MP3 files. There are 14 selections here from Alana LaGrange.
