Rockin' Up the Housetop
By Bob Phillips
Highland/Etling String Explorer
This high-energy holiday medley combines the well-known tunes, "Up on the Housetop," "Jingle Bells," and "Jolly Old St. Nicholas" in a 1950s rock and roll style. The open fifth, eighth note accompaniment should be played with a bounced bow at the frog. Pay careful attention to the staccato notes during the driving eighth note melodies. Students will love this "Chuck Berry meets the holidays" setting of traditional tunes. This title is available in SmartMusic.
