Harry Potter – Hedwig’s Theme Glockenspiel / Xylophone Sheet Music and Note Chart

The melody of Harry Potter – Hedwig’s Theme is moderately difficult and it consists of 14 notes (8 natural notes and 6 accidentals), as you can see on the chart following the notes of the song.

Actually, the “Hedwig’s Theme”, as you may find out when you listen to the original composition, consists of three themes and a music bridge. But the first two are the ones we can sing and remember, thus we talk about them in this tutorial video and music sheet.

So, the first two staves of the score are part A of the piece, and the other two staves are part B. We suggest starting studying the first one first and then the second one, which starts at 0:35 in the video.

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 – not only the one that is more convenient for you (e.g. the right one if you’re right-handed) as this an important basic technique.
