Christmas Video Tutorials on YouTube

If you’re the visual type, you can watch our piano or glockenspiel tutorials for Christmas songs on our YouTube Channel.

Christmas piano Video Tutorials

Our piano tutorial videos use a horizontal split screen effect to show an actual keyboard with hands playing (below) and a virtual keyboard with the notes ‘falling’ on the keys at the moment they should be played (above). That helps the player get ready for the next notes even without looking at the sheet music.

The songs are played at a slow speed, suitable for beginners, so you can practice as much as you like. Don’t be afraid to hit the replay button!…

Christmas glockenspiel video Tutorials

These 20 glockenspiel tutorials are meant to facilitate an easy performance for a school concert or beginner-level players.
