Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Glockenspiel / Xylophone Sheet Music and Note Chart
The melody of Rudolph is moderately difficult and it consists of 8 notes (7 natural and 1 sharp one) as you can see on the chart bellow.
Although the music sheet music looks pretty big, there’s no need to be alarmed! After the introduction, the song actually consists of 2 musical phrases, with the first one being repeated 3 times in total. That said, if you have learnt one of them, you already know half of the song.
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.
