Luigi's Baton & The Orchestra Family Reunion
From Hal Leonardby John Jacobson John Higgins and Wesley Ball
Learn About The Instruments Of The Orchestra Through Song, Story And Active Listening
It's time for the family reunion at Symphony Hall and the instruments are starting to arrive. Here comes the Brass family - what a blast, and the String family always arrives early so they can sit in the front. Look who's marching down the street- it's the Percussion family, and at last, the Woodwinds have arrived - the whole reedy bunch and more. Join Maestro Luigi and his trusted baton for a multi-media study of the instruments of the orchestra like never before. Your students will enjoy humorous story-telling, original songs and listening maps of orchestral recordings that feature each family.
A Digital Student Edition comes with the Teacher's Edition, so everything can be projected from your computer. The enclosed CD-ROM features full-color PDFs of the stories, vocal songsheets, and listening maps - all with embedded audio and video recordings so you can listen, watch, sing, or dance with a single click. Join John Jacobson as he shows you the choreography for each song.
The Teacher's Edition offers easy-to-present lesson plans linked to the National Standards for all the material and piano/vocal song arrangements with printed choreography notes. This incredible interactive resource is a must for every music library. Songs include:
