Dreamy Piano music is a quiet, elegant music that uses chords & harmony from jazz and classical music. This is the kind of music that is very relaxing and soothing for meditation or dining with family and beloved friends.

Silver Bells is a very special Christmas Song. Even though the melody of Silver Bells is very plain. If you take a look at the music score of Silver Bells, you will be able to pick up some very unique features in this song.

One of the unique feature of the song is the ‘accidental’ note that occurs in 2 places in Section A. Think of the accidental note as a ‘flat’ rather than a ‘sharp’.

Once you think of that note as a ‘flat’, you will be able to create a very smooth chromatic chord movement in that section to highlight the unique feature of this song. And when you can figure out the great chromatic movement chord progression, you can put it into the Turn Around and in the Ending of the Song.

Another very Unique Feature of the song is that there are many empty measures in Section B. Usually in empty measures, we can put in all kinds of runs and fills.

For "Silver Bells”, I refrain from putting in just any kind of runs and fills. We can certainly fill up those empty measures with ballad style of playing, and many of the runs and fills I presented to you in White Christmas.

Silver Bells with its repeated melodic notes give us many opportunities to do Dreamy Echoes in the empty measures. When we hear bells, we want to hear echoes.
