My husband faithfully curled his lip and baritoned his way through it. My daughter thinks we're either musical geniuses or certifiable, at her age it's hard to tell. But a Merry Christmas was had by all!

Dear Hugh,

Thank you so much for that transposition! It sounds even nicer in Ab! Perhaps next Christmas, you could start a thread for learning a new Christmas carol every year for "terminally untalented" people like me! grin

I may be short on raw talent, but I'm long on perseverance! thumb

That's a great idea! I'd be more than happy to come up with more carol arrangements next year!

I'm starting lessons again(it's 54 years since my last)in a couple weeks, and I'm bringing the Peanuts book I bought a couple months ago and found too difficult. By Christmas 2015 either it will be in demand or my household will be sick of it. It will also be a heuristic activity for learning keys, chords, re-arranging, etc. Assuming of course my teacher approves of this part of my agenda.

I think it's SO important to play music you love in order to keep you motivated and happy. If your piano teacher doesn't get that, then boo to them!

I just learned my first Xmas song, Christmas Time is here, from a lead sheet adding my own jazzy voicings. It was a lot of fun.
