Hot Cheetos and Takis

It's time to step out of your comfort zone and into the world of Rap! This is a fabulous song. It's wonderful for older beginners. My third graders are doing ta, ta-ti, and rest. This is going to be fantastic for them! My fantasy is to make up a recorder ostinato for the chorus. I'll update the post if i try it and it works. Wish me luck!

Carol of the Bells pdf

Carol of the bells Orff 2012
Happy New School Year! I'm very thankful for all of you!  Your reading of my blog has encouraged me to keep writing, deepened my practice as a teacher and musician, allowed me to rack up loads of professional development points in hours of writing.  You inspire me, you challenge me, you are great colleagues.

As we begin a new school year, I'd like to give you something to make your year better.  It's pdf files of parts for Carol of the Bells, the arrangement that my middle school students played for their 2012 December concert.  The mic is right in front of the Orff instruments, but we have electric bass, guitar, and two keyboards in the mix.  We put this together in 3 weeks!  If you have younger students you might want to begin in October.  If you have a Monday class you might want to begin in September, there are so many Monday holidays in the fall.

Just write a subject you'd like me to write about in the blog this…
