I’m super excited — not only has the Lord allowed me to record my first Christmas album, but I also have it ready in time to offer it to everyone for FREE until Monday! Sign up to reserve your copy here. Then, share the gift with someone else. 🙂
The title song, “Christmas is (a Gift)” was composed by my sister, Elizabeth Tero. It is such a beautiful song, but the full meaning comes in when you combine the lyrics with the melody. Here it is on YouTube with the words:
This one was fun to arrange. It’s a slightly different style than I have really done before. Given the haunting reflection of the words, the arrangement is more meandering, wandering.
Sheet music is available here.
I’m excited to introduce my first published violin/piano duet!
Find the sheet music on WAJN.
Also, if you’re not following me on YouTube, last week I did another first: some piano impromptu videos. I need to work a little on mastering even impromptu.
This one was arranged per request of one of my students. It was fun, because most of my students are late-beginner/early intermediate. This student, however, can do the runs and chords. So I had a blast. 😉
It seems like one of the popular Christmas favorites is “O Holy Night.” One of my newer students requested this for Christmas. As she knew music before I began teaching her, I was able to make it a late-beginner arrangement for her, using elements of the original arrangement.
Here’s a sample of the music:
Piano duet!! I love duets… and Christmas music. 😉 So, why not mix the two?
The air is turning cooler! And as soon as it does, I like to break out the Christmas music! You can ask my students — some of us have already begun working on Christmas carols!
Here’s one full of exuberance and joy! What is one of your favorite Christmas carols?
