First Christmas Tunes is a festive and fun repertoire of 26 pieces for beginner pianists that complement the renowned John Thompson’s Easiest Piano Course.
The pieces included in the book are the all-time Christmas classics, with compositions that are familiar to everyone such as O Come All Ye Faithful, Deck the Halls and an essential that should be in everyone’s repertoire, We Wish You A Merry Christmas. Every piece is enjoyable to play and fun to listen to, making this perfect for the Christmas season when these tunes will get everyone, regardless of age or taste, into the spirit.
The songs in First Christmas Tunes get progressively more challenging, beginning with basic pieces that would be ideal for the beginner who is just learning to play with both hands. As the book goes on, the tunes get more advanced, giving beginners a chance to strive towards the more difficult pieces, but also meaning the book will last at least a year or two as the pupil can return to the book each successive Christmas to consolidate what they have learned over the year. The songs could also be used as sight-reading practice for beginners who have mastered the techniques.
Pupils will love the recognisable tunes that will help them put into practice what they’ve learned. The festive favourites within this selection such as God Rest You Merry Gentlemen and Jingle Bells are presented in simplified arrangements so that familiar tunes can be learned immediately, boosting confidence and enjoyment.
