Tips for playing Level 2 "Jolly Old Saint Nicholas:"
This Level 2 (very easy level) "Jolly Old Saint Nicholas" doesn't require a hand-position change at all. After you download it, please look at the hand-position tutorial page and stay in that position throughout the song. The fingering numbers are provided on most notes. There is one black key that you do need to play on the 7th measure with the left hand. You'll be playing the melody notes and harmonic notes at the same time. Therefore, it requires a lot more coordination between the right and left hands and between different fingers than Level 1 "Jolly Old Saint Nicholas." If you are a complete beginner, we recommend you to try Level 1 first.
This arrangement is for piano solo. However, you or someone else can sing along. The separate lyrics page is included in the PDF file.
