The First Noel Glockenspiel / Xylophone Sheet Music and Note Chart
This song, here in C major, uses all the notes of the scale and is perfect for practicing. Its time signature is 3/4 and it’s quite easy to play, especially if you sing along. It is has two parts with 8 meters each. Study these parts separately, as the first part is different from the second one. As with any piece you study, start at a very slow tempo and speed will come along gradually as you keep on practicing.
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.
