La Cucaracha Glockenspiel / Xylophone Sheet Music and Note Chart

The song of La Cucaracha is adapted here in F major. The tune expands in the range between C4 and D5 and uses the B-flat note, as you can see on the chart following the notes of the song.

The song is moderately difficult, but becomes easier if you start learning through singing. Ρeplace the lyrics with notes, like solfège, and learn each phrase separately. For example, the first phrase will be C – C – C – F – A / C – C – C – F – A / F – F – E – E – D – D – C.
After that, 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.
