Our family has a yearly Thanksgiving tradition of writing down all the things for which we are thankful God has provided. And every year the typical things make it onto the list: family, friends, physical and spiritual blessings provided by the Lord, etc. Naturally, since piano music is such a major part of our lives here, it makes the list too. I like what concert pianist Sam Rotman says about the gift of music:
“God gave me the hands to play the music, the mind to understand the music, the discipline to practice the music, and the heart to love the music.”
Thank you for giving credit where credit is due, Mr. Rotman.
Thanksgiving marks the “official” beginning of Christmas season, so I am making my sheet music arrangements of three late intermediate Christmas tunes available for free here. Play them, enjoy them, share them.
Give the file a few seconds to load--its on the larger side for sheet music.
Adam & Anna Bendorf are piano teachers in Santa Clarita, CA. The charm of Christmas carols has not lost its spark even though the Bendorfs started listening to Christmas music back in October.
