Away in a Manger
An elementary-level piano solo setting of “Away in a Manger” (the Kirkpatrick tune). My students who play this haven’t really learned all the notes represented here, but since the hands stay in one position for each complete verse, they have no problems playing it.
The optional, harder duet part makes the arrangement sound refined and sophisticated, even though the solo part can be easily played by an elementary-level pianist.
An mp3 recording is included to give students a way to practice with the duet part.
