“Away in a Manger” is a cradle-like Christmas carol first published in 1885 in Philadelphia and used widely throughout the English-speaking world. I remember how often I heard it played and sung during school plays, where the actor would rock a baby cradle back and forth while singing it. There are actually two popular version of this song, one being more popular to you depending on where in the world you’re from. But, they are actually closely related to each other – both can actually be played at the same time, and you wouldn’t end up with anything dissonant.

how to learn the piano part
“Away in a Manger” is best played as a chorale in 4 voices or SATB (Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass registers), even on piano, although beginners can get away with just playing a single chord in the left hand and the melody on top.
Practice just the primary chords of the melody by itself from time to time and you will probably see that it really is the easiest component to perfect. Once you understand the ‘roadmap’ of how chords move forward in between one another within a song, the rest becomes painless. Most songs make use of only about three key harmonies that they’re depending on such as the tonic, dominant and IV chord. Piano tabs can help you take control of the melody associated with a song fairly quickly and next you only have to put in a bass note with the left hand every once in awhile to state you know the song! To make sound more longer lasting on a ‘percussion’ musical instrument such as the piano, consider splitting up a chord or implementing more of the pedal.
