The Addams Family Theme – How to Play on the Glockenspiel / Xylophone

By Vic Mizzy

“The Addams Family Theme” is taken from the 1964 TV series and, later on, the 1991 film of the same title.

The Addams Family is an aristocratic but macabre and definitely quite eccentric and spooky family. Initially, before becoming a TV series and movie, it was a cartoon designed by cartoonist Charles Addams, which was first published in 1938.

As for the musical theme of the film, this was composed by Vic Mizzy. The orchestration is very simple and is based mainly on the harpsicord and finger-snaps.
