“O Tannenbaum” was originally a traditional German folk song, which turned into a Christmas Carol in the early 20th century.

O Christmas tree (O Tannenbaum) Glockenspiel / Xylophone Sheet Music and Note Chart

A quite an easy song for someone who is a beginner to the glockenspiel or xylophone, but wants to play one more popular Christmas tune. We only use one note of the upper row of the instrument, B♭, since the sheet music is written in F major. All the notes used are clearly shown on the color map below. The song is in ABA form, so if you learn the first phrase you can automatically play the last one.

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.
