The Music Tree: Christmas is a new addition to the revolutionary Music Tree series. Designed to develop solid reading from the beginning, these Christmas collections contain many of the most-requested carols, in addition to some not readily available for beginners. The duets are impressive and add rich sonority to each student part. Titles: Joy to the World * Silent Night * The First Noel * Away in a Manger * Deck the Halls * We Wish You a Merry Christmas * Jingle Bells.

About The Music Tree

The Music Tree series continues the development of complete musicianship by providing the beginner with delightful and varied repertoire. The pupil learns a variety of idioms encompassing folk, jazz and pop. The creativity of the students is emphasized since they are given musical segments to rearrange, transpose, complete or to use as the basis for a new composition. Technical aspects are also addressed including greater facility, blocked intervals and chords, and more hands together playing. Guided training steps are used to encourage intelligent practice skills.

    If you use The Music Tree, this is a great Christmas accompaniment for your students as it fits the teaching style of the method. I'm disappointed that the Christmas book for Part 2 is not divided into Part 2A and Part 2B, like the teaching books are. The decision...

    to combine 2A and 2B into one Christmas book means that there are just 7 songs for your student to choose from, and if your student is in the middle of the 2A books, many songs in this Christmas book may not yet be appropriate. In that case, I am also using the Christmas Part 1 book. (But then they have to purchase 2 Christmas books!) But it really is a great Christmas book, with all the traditional favorites, for students familiar with this method.
