Every child knows this popular Christmas song, but not every piano student knows the entire tune, or the words. My first full arrangement of Jingle Bells, below, has both. (For an easier beginner version of Jingle Bells sheet music, see this page.)
Play it higher than written
I like to suggest to kids that they play this easy arrangement of Jingle Bells high up on the piano, to make it sound more bell-like.
And the sound of jingling bells
Here is the "fancy" version for intermediate piano players, with little chord clusters in the right hand. They naturally sound like bells - but especially so when they are played up high, as in this arrangement:

Make your students analyze those chord inversions
See line 3, "O'er the fields we go?" Ask your student to identify the chord, which is "in disguise." In other words, make it a fun game.
I like to have my students analyze each chord, marking the inversions as "slash chords" -- C/G and D/A for the first 2 measures in line 3, for example.
Oh no - I can't hear the left hand melody!
Notice that the left hand is the prominent voice here at the start - good practice for balancing volume in the hands!
So how do you make one hand louder than the other?
This is pretty hard to do at first, so I like to introduce (or review) "Loud/Soft" exercises when preparing a piano piece with this particular challenge.
You can make up exercises for your student that use patterns they are already familiar with to practice this skill, but here are several ways I have done it:
- A 5-note scale in one hand (the loud hand) played against soft triads in the other hand. Move up a step & repeat, for an octave
- Then switch parts, so the other hands plays the scale
- Or, just continue with the same parts, but make the triads loud and the scale soft.
- The timing can be the same in each hand, or you could have half notes against quarters.
So in preparation for this arrangement, I would have them practice scale tones in the LH, with the RH playing triads.

Oh, to live in a simpler time
The words in the first part of this song are much less commonly known than the refrain.
The words "Dashing through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh" take me to another time and place.
It feels a little bit like being in one of those Thomas Kincaid paintings with lights at all the windows of a quaint cottage, singing "O'er the fields we go, laughing all the way!"
Christmas song lyrics like Jingle Bells make me nostalgic for simpler times.

I recently purchased your arrangement of The Moldau (a longtime favorite of mine).
I wasn't sure if any of my students would be interested in it, but to my amazement 3 of my students LOVE it. Thank you so much for making your great arrangement.
Thank you so much for these resources - I have a small music studio in Johannesburg, South Africa.
My kids love playing these tunes.
Do you have a funny story about this music, or does it remind you of something you'd like to share with other readers? Do you have a question? I'd love to hear it!

Jingle Bells was written by James Lord Pierpont in , so it's an old song— but still very popular! He called it "One Horse Open Sleigh". Even though it has become a popular Christmas song, it was originally written and sung for Thanksgiving! This animated video is fun to watch—it even shows the "lean and lank" horse splat falling down. Sing along!
The video below is a tutorial that shows you how to play a VERY EASY version of Jingle Bells on a piano.
The third verse is often omitted.

Jingle Bells Very Easy Piano Sheet Music & Tutorial
Right Hand Tune
Teach the right hand first and dont attempt to add the left hand until they can play the R.H easily.
1. Sing the song together, while clapping the rhythm at the same time. Take a fairly slow tempo.
2. Play the tune to the child while they sing along, if the child can read the words, suggest they point to the words on the music as they sing.
3. Explain that the R.H plays the top line and that there are four beats in the bar. Ask the child to place their R.H in position with 1 (thumb) on middle C. Talk the child through the fingering of the first phrase, touching gently each finger in the correct order that they should play.
Take Each Phrase At A Time
4. Ask the child to play the first phrase slowly, count 4 beats in, and point at the notes as they play them. Play it twice through.
5. Add each phrase in the same way, breaking it up into small chunks makes it easier to grasp.
6. Finally see if they can manage to play the whole piece. Make sure they dont try to go too fast and point to the notes as they play, helping them with the fingering if they get stuck. Encourage them to keep going and make very light of any mistakes. Give lots of praise and encouragement!
7. Once the R.H is mastered you can move on to the L.H but most beginners are happy to play it with one hand for a while, or as a duet with their teacher.
Left Hand Chords
8. This may be the first time that they have had a new position for the L.H, so spend a little time getting used to the C below middle C. Explain that the L.H is in the same place as the R.H but one octave lower. This is covered in my lesson Easiest Way to Learn the Notes by practising note hopping.
9. First demonstrate playing the three notes C,E & G together with fingers 5 ,3 &1 . Explain that when the notes are played together they make a chord. Then ask the child to have a go, this might take a little practise at first, explain that it is a bit tricky but will get easier. If the 3 notes at once are too difficult, then miss out the middle note E, and just play C & G with 5 & 1.
Point out that the chord is played on the first beat of the bar, each time on the word Jingle. Invite the child to play the L.H while you play the R.H. Once they have got the hang of the chord, the rest seems relatively easy but dont expect them to grasp it all in one lesson.
Take Your Time
Explain the left hand rhythm on the word way (bars 4 & 12) as 1 off! 3 off! as this explains the crotchet (1/4 note) rests. Play the rest of the left hand phrase by phrase, with fingers moving only on the first beat of the bar. Point out the clashing 2 &1 minims (1/2 notes) played both at once in bars 13 & 15 and ask if they like them and then if it sounds good when it goes back to the friendly old C chord at the end!
Practise the song together as a duet, taking turns to play both left and right hands until they find it easy . The child will want to attempt to play both hands together soon enough, but it should be all their idea!

Music bells printable jingle sheet
Jingle Bells Piano
This Jingle Bells piano version is a fun and lively arrangement of the song that has some challenging sections to learn, most notably in the fast moving bassline of the left hand part. It is suitable for piano players who are reasonably early on in their learning as it is in a simple key and the shortest note value is an eighth note (quaver). It is a good opportunity for pianists to practice their left hand as the bass notes of this Jingle Bells Piano sheet music are the foundation for the groove.
The very fast tempo and right hand harmony may be too much of a challenge for some and so I have also produced a Jingle Easy Piano arrangement as well which you can download at the end of this post.

It is the leaping bass notes in the left hand which give this Jingle Bells piano arrangement its energy and rhythm. I would certainly suggest practising the left hand bass part slowly and separately from the right hand before trying to combine the 2 hands together. You almost need to get to the point where the left hand part feels “automatic” and “easy” to play before speeding up the tempo and combining the hands.
The articulation of the bassline is very important. Emphasis should be placed on the 1st note of each measure with the other notes played staccato:
Jingle Bells Piano Left Hand Phrasing
The phrasing in this Jingle Bells piano arrangement is crucial to capturing the feel of the song and producing a convincing performance.
Sweeping opening phrases of the piece contrast with the staccato crotchets (quarter notes) of bar 7.
The Sforzando stab chords are accented and staccato; these help punctuate the arrangement and should be enjoyed!
The last 4 bars which are effectively an outro or a coda are quite bluesy in their feel and hopefully provide a fun ending to the piece. They also give an indication of the style of keyboard improvisation that is possible over this style of bassline. More advanced pianists may like to use the left hand part as a foundation for some improvised solos.
Jingle Bells Easy Piano
Here is a simpler piano version:
Jingles Bells was written by James Lord Pierpont () sometime around
Here are the lyrics:
Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh
Oer the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bob tail ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight!
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.
I hope you enjoy learning to play this Christmas classic.
It is a great tune to learn as you can have great fun singing it with friends and family during the festive season.
The choice of tempo may change slightly when you are singing with others. You may want to slow the tempo slightly as this will enable others to sing along with the lyrics.
The piano part will also work as an accompaniment to other instruments, such as a violin, recorder or flute.
The key signature of C major should mean that it is fairly easy for someone to play on a solo instrument.

The girl who was fucked by Slava and Igor screamed and at the same moment Igor finished on her face, and Slava on her back. We all fell exhausted. Five minutes later, my wife took control of us and sent us to take a shower. I didn't want to go up, it's hard.

Of Yulka's vagina so familiar to me. Catching my eye, the stern business woman raised her hand to her lips and almost openly licked a viscous drop from her fingers with a sharp tongue. I looked around warily, but it seems that none of those present noticed anything, everyone was thinking about their own, dreaming to quickly leave the stuffy. Room and find themselves in the fresh air.
And the little thing, meanwhile, continued to gradually disappear from the ladies' reticule.
