Mary Did You Know?



Tutorial: Mary Did You Know?

In this piano tutorial we’ll learn to play the Christmas song “Mary Did You Know.” This is one of my favorite Christmas songs on the piano. Even though this version features chords and text, it works very well as a piano solo. Here are a couple things to keep in mind when playing this piece:

  • Pay close attention to the syncopations! (We discuss this in the video.)
  • Be sure that you’re changing the piano’s sustain pedal on every new chord.
  • Shape the melody as if you were singing this text.
  • In general, make a crescendo when the melody goes up and make a decrescendo when the melody goes down.

Hope you enjoy this tutorial!
