Studio Use License – This comes with a studio license and is a fantastic value as this can be used for as many students as you directly teach!


This Black Key Jingle Bells is a welcome addition to pre-reading music for beginning piano students. This Rote and Reading® piece teaches students to move easily around the keyboard and gives them a big and more advanced sound than most early level black key pieces.

The Level of this Black Key Jingle Bells

This arrangement is early elementary. It is from the Rote and Reading® series which enables even your youngest students to play it. Students can read by finger number on the black keys and the picture of the keyboard shows students where to place their hands. The left hand thumb is placed on a white key, but this is very easy for the student to see because of the picture and the left hand thumb falls naturally on that key anyway.

The introduction and ending of this piece are written on the staff so that teachers can easily understand what the students are to play. But these pages are intended to be taught by rote. The main “jingle bells” music is written off the staff and intended to be read by finger numbers.

What is a Studio License?

This Black Key Jingle Bells is available as a studio license which means that you only have to purchase it one time and then you can print and use it for as many students as you directly teach. It’s like getting an unlimited supply of a piece since you never have to pay for it again, plus there is no shipping. You get the Black Key Jingle Bells PDF and bonus mp3 in your email within minutes of your purchase.

Free Bonus Recording of Black Key Jingle Bells

Black Key Jingle Bells also comes with a free mp3 recording so that students can listen to the music at home and remember how the piece is to be played. You are granted permission to share this mp3 file with your students that are learning the piece.

  1. Rhonda Trull

    I have a students who is a brand new beginner. When I played this piece for him, he asked if I really thought he could do it. I assured him that he could, and we got started playing just the opening measures in various spots on the piano. He now plays those measures from bottom of the piano to top and looks forward every week to adding the next few measures. This will be his first recital, but instead of being nervous about it, this song has made him excited about playing it for every one.

    This is so clever, fun and entertaining for EVERYONE! Sounds big and impressive, easy to teach by rote and is a confidence builder.

    This is a great piece for pulse work ! My beginner pupil usually struggles to play rhythmically but she is enjoying the challenge of playing the chords at the beginning and end without missing a beat !

    My students LOVE this piece of music. One student drove his mum crazy by playing it over and over and over again. It has fast become his number 1! Thank you Wendy for making such fun, interesting yet easy pieces for beginner’s to learn and enjoy.

  5. Amanda Maskell

    A real crowd pleaser for the Christmas season. What kid doesn’t want to play Jingle Bells? The intro and outro are easy to teach by rote and add that extra sparkle.

  6. Heidi Erickson

    This piece is brilliant! I just opened my studio this year, and I taught this piece by rote to all of my young students. Even I was surprised how quickly and solidly they learned it, sounding out the melody part by ear. This has given me confidence to teach more by ear. One student is struggling to learn anything, so I gave her the sheet for the melody and she is able to slowly learn it — so there are options. I so love the freedom that the studio license has given me. This is truly my one go-to site. Thanks so much, Wendy!
