How to Play “Silent Night” on Piano | Christmas Songs


My name is Paul Sandberg. I’m an actor, singer, and teacher in the New
York City area. For more information, please visit my website
at paulsandberg.net. Silent night, holy night. All is calm, all is bright. Round yon virgin, mother and child. Holy infant so tender and mild. Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly
peace. So that was Silent Night, a wonderfully simple
Christmas standard that can be played easily by noting just 3 main chords. Bb, Eb, and F. Bb can be played like that. Eb, and F, back to B. Or if you’d like to
make it even easier on yourself, you can drop it down to just the root of those chords,
with Bb played in your pinkie, or 5 finger. With Eb played in your middle or 3 finger. And then your thumb, 1 finger, on the F. Then
just add in the melody. So the right hand can either play in thirds,
or just 1 single line of melody. Starting on the F.
Add in the right hand, just single notes, or add note thirds if you like, just rounds
out the harmony. There’s no reason to make this overly complicated. Some of the beauty of Silent Night is just
in how simple and beautiful it is on its own. And that’s how easy it is to play Silent Night.
