A collection of well-known Christmas and Chanukah melodies arranged to meet the needs of individuals, groups and orchestras. In order to provide flexibility, the collections are available in a number of instrumentations, all of which are compatible with each other. Acessible keys have been used and shifting is kept to a minimum. Arranged and edited by Joanne Martin.
The activities in TAP, CLAP, and SING! are designed to enhance the child's learning by implementing and reinforcing the concepts already experienced in a music setting. Body movement, rhythmic experiences and singing are used to help children master skills while illustrations are included for coloring and aiding in rhythmic development and 'Memory Joggers' are inserted periodically to encourage review. Book 2 introduces the concepts of form, intervals and time signatures and provides a creative way to implement the step-by-step process of note-reading for children ages six and older.
