CHRISTMAS Duets for beginning Violin and Piano

violin and piano

Hello everyone! It’s October, and you know what that means for music teachers…time to start Christmas music!

Two of my private students happen to be twins; they always want to try to play together, but since one is on violin (sharps!) and the other on piano, they don’t often have that opportunity at this point in time. (They have been playing for a little over a year now.)

Here are two duets that I arranged for them. They will probably be at least a little bit challenging, but I think they will be ready in time for Christmas. 🙂

I would love your feedback or to hear recordings of your students playing these arrangements.
