Playing beautiful, peaceful Christmas music on the piano is one of the biggest joys of the year. Christmas music can bring so much calmness and grounding to a bustling season.

We’ve chosen 10 beautiful piano arrangements that are perfect for piano students or adults returning to the piano. Each of these selections is only 2-3 pages long and should be manageable for an early intermediate pianist with just a few years of piano experience.

We hope you will share these pieces with your piano students or try them out yourself!
