If you are a middle school choir teacher that enjoys the reward of teaching your students how to site read multiple part music, this tune is for you. Learning to site read can be challenging but there is nothing more gratifying than hearing your choir pull off a tune with nothing more than a piano and some sheet music. Some students might find site-reading challenging at first. As such, there is a lyric sheet available to help them memorize the words of the song before seeing them with the notes.
A Very Merry Time sheet music is the perfect piece to add to an existing sheet music library and a great "starter" song for students to tryout. The song is quite easy to learn and will give your students a sense of accomplishment from the first day of learning. Depending on your choir's level, the time you will need to master this tune will vary. So as this is a holiday tune, plan your site-reading sessions accordingly.
