Christmas Carols for Beginners by Jessie Blake (Duets)

One of my first memories of duet playing is Jessie Blake’s Eight Duets for Beginners. I used to love playing these pieces with my teacher – The Old Banjo and Pink Parasol are timeless classics!

Christmas Duets by Jessie Blake

There is also a very easy beginner Christmas Carols book in the same series and this is ideal for students that have only been learning for a term or so. Do pick up a copy this week and we can have some Christmas songs ready in time for the 25th of December! If this book isn’t in stock at the local music shop, do try these two instead. The John Thompsons Solo Christmas book and also the Duet Christmas books. The solo book is better suited to beginner pianists as the duet book is quite tricky and also features lesser known carols. We  have a copy of both books in our piano studio in East Dulwich and have been using these with our students since the start of this half-term.
