Shchedryk is an extremely popular Ukrainian folk melody which is often associated with Christmas around the world. People commonly know this piece as ‘Carol of the Bells.’
This exclusive arrangement, for sale here, is based on the original music, Shchedryk, by Ukrainian composer Mykola Leontovych, which was composed in 1914.
This version can be sung along with as well, using the famous carol words, as this arrangement follows the familiar structure of the carol.
Letter-names (note labels) have been added to every note. These include any and all “accidentals” (sharps, flats, naturals, etc.).
The arranger and professional engraver of this sheet music, Kent D. Smith (that’s me), is a college-degreed music instructor, with over 45 years of teaching, performing, and composing experience.

How to make this one even easier to play:
One potentially challenging (but optional) thing for some smaller hands might be the occasional octaves in this arrangement. (An OCTAVE being two notes of the same name, say “E,” but just seven scale-steps up (the E right “next door”), or seven scale-steps down, from each other.) BUT:
*THE GOOD NEWS IS, you don’t have to play any of these octaves here: You can always just choose the lower ‘E’ in this example, or the higher ‘E’. The full octaves sound cool and all, but if you just catch whatever notes of these pairs that you can–the piece will still sound good!
