The J&J Christmas Concerts

My brother, Jeremy, and I played Christmas songs for our English students. Our first day of Christmas concerts was on Thursday, December 13th. Jay played the ukulele and I played the guitar.

We played five songs for each class. Here are some YouTube samples…

{ J&J Christmas medley – 3 songs }

Song No. 1 – “Silent Night

The first song in the medley was “Silent Night”. Here’s one by Il Divo.

Song No. 2 – “Joy to the World”

The second song was “Joy to the World”.  Here’s one by Acappella.

Song No. 3 – “El Santa Pasa” (“El Condor Pasa”)

And the third song of our medley was “El Santa Pasa”. We changed the title of “El Condor Pasa”, a South American song, to make it into a “Christmas song”. 🙂 “The Santa Passes”… get it? Here’s one I found on YouTube performed with saxophones by the Christmas Band!

{ Sing-alongs }

Song No 4. – “We Wish You A Merry Christmas”

We also played some easy songs that the students can sing along with. We sang “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” together! Here’s Mr. Munson playing the song on the guitar (with lyrics).

Song No. 5 – “Jingle Bells”

And the last song we played and sang was “Jingle Bells“! This is a ukulele performance by Hoang Luu.


We are going to play these 5 songs on Friday, Saturday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, too!

We also want the students to learn the true meaning of Christmas – the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
