BAS-11 Christmas Songs

About this lesson

This lesson material included four very basic Christmas melodies you can teach your student during Christmas time. Although the songs are well suited to children, you can still give them to your teenager and adult students. Challenge your older students to add stylistic techniques such as hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, bends, vibrato etc. to the basic melodies. This material is a fun way to try something different.

Songs included: Deck the Halls, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, Jingle Bells, Silent Night.

Ideas to make the most out of this lesson plan:

  • Ask the student to use stylistic techniques instead of picking every note
  • Ask the student to try to transpose the melodies
  • Teach the student how to figure out what chords would work behind the melodies
  • Ask the student to improvise with the melodies as basic 'themes'
