We Wish You a Merry Christmas! Cha-Cha-Cha!
Piano Solo for Intermediate
Arrangement by Susan Staples Bell, ASCAP
Susan Staples Bell has been a Piano Instructor for over 30 years. In all her compositions, she strives to educate as well as delight. This arrangement of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” is certainly unexpected! Shall we, “Cha-Cha-Cha?”
Written for Intermediate, this arrangement features a quicker tempo, running eighth notes, broken chords figures, parallel sixths passage, and syncopation. The piece begins with a lively syncopated Left hand bass line that sets the tone throughout. The melody arrives in measure 9 (Right hand) and matches rhythm with the Left hand. The “B” section comes in measure 17, which offers a smoother feel for contrast. Check out the fun, broken chord interlude at measure 25! In measure 48, the parallel sixths passage offers an opportunity for ritardando and a fermata, making the audience wait….until one more time for the broken chord interlude! Measure 57, gives the last statement of the melody, in a rising a climax for the end.
Not to mention, it’s JUST PLAIN FUN!
Perfect choice for recitals! Christmas Piano Solo
For Intermediate. Performance time 01:45.
