Designed for those students who have had only a few weeks of study and consequently have limited skills in note-reading. Some of these pre-reading solos are in the Middle C Position with the melody divided between the hands. Students may be unfamiliar with the rhythmic notation of some of the pieces. However, they will usually play the music correctly by memory, or if not, the rhythms can be quickly learned by rote. All of the pieces include a duet accompaniment part for parents or the teacher. Titles: Frosty the Snowman * (There's No Place Like) Home for the Holidays * It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year * Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! * The Little Drummer Boy * Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town * Sleigh Ride * Winter Wonderland.
