'Tis the season for holiday arrangements! My studio is filled each day with the sounds of old friends like "Jingle Bells" and "Silent Night." My students are always excited to play their favorite familiar holiday tunes.
Although I love holiday music, there is such a thing as too much "Jingle Bells!" To keep things fresh, I am always looking for ways to help my students spice up these old favorites by creating their own unique arrangements. So, today I am sharing a chart with a few simple left hand accompaniment patterns that your students can use to help freshen up their favorite holiday songs (or any other tune they like).
Whether your students are playing from lead sheets, filling out a simple arrangement, or just looking for ways to add variety to repeated verses of carols--this chart can be a helpful tool.
