Brahms’ Lullaby Glockenspiel / Xylophone Sheet Music and Note Chart

Moving within the range of the C major octave, Brahms’ Lullaby, as well as Offenbach’s Can Can, is ideal for practice the 8 natural notes of this key. Time signature 3/4 is common for lullabies, and this song is no exception.

Watch the video a couple of times and study each part at your own pace until you get the hang of it. Remember to use both mallets as much as you can. For this purpose avoid using only the hand that is more convenient for you (e.g. the right one if you’re right-handed) as this an important basic technique.
