Learn Silent Night

Found in: Tutorials

Elizabeth Gaikwad is the creator of the very popular Songs For Children 1 program, as well as the forthcoming Duets 1 and Songs for Children 2. Just for the festive season, she has put together a version of Silent Night, which can be learned on multiple levels. Firstly, it can be used as a simple accompaniment for anyone who has experienced the first few steps of the Simply Music Accompaniment program.

Elizabeth has also put together a more developed variation of the accompaniment, with more sophisticated chords and a graceful bass line.

She steps you through both versions in an audio tutorial, which will have you playing in no time.

Players who are at the music-reading level can also teach themselves the variation from the notation version or perhaps read the melody and play the chords in the left hand.
