Perhaps one of the most popular Christmas festive tunes, "The Twelve Days of Christmas" is taught to children all over the world with the "5 golden rings" part especially enjoyed!

A relatively simple and repetitive tune which makes it great practice for beginners. The challenge will be getting up to speed and playing with a nice flow. Good luck :)
