Jolly Pachelbel – Jolly Old Saint Nicholas and Pachelbel’s Canon

Jolly Old Saint Nicholas and Pachelbel’s Canon, arranged together in a piano duet for beginner and teacher (Early Elementary plus Early Intermediate duet part).

  • Main book plus two removable practice sheets:
  • Pre-staff sheet with music and words
  • Early staff sheet without words (Early Elementary, Prep A)
  • Duet/accompaniment — Intermediate (Level 4)
  • Score comes with two arrangements: In F to accompany pre-staff, and in C to accompany early staff


This is a special arrangement of Jolly Old Saint Nicholas, in which the melody of this well-known Christmas classic is matched with a reduction of the equally famous and loved music from Johann Pachelbel’s Canon in D.


This Christmas arrangement appeals to piano teachers and their young beginning students. Two versions are included with the Teacher Package, pre-staff (Jolly Pachelbel in F) and early-staff (Jolly Pachelbel in C). The teacher chooses the appropriate arrangement depending on the reading level the student has achieved by the Christmas recital.

Beginner students shine with pride as their child-like, jolly little piece transforms into a truly special musical experience. Give your child a Christmas memory that will last.
