Active Songs For A Swingin' Classroom
Experience jazz in the music classroom with this swingin' collection designed for kids. Each song is written and arranged in a distinctive jazz style, or groove, while keeping it fun with movement, a singing game or activity – learning music concepts in the process. You also receive online digital access to three audio mixes: with vocals, without vocals, and with only the second vocal part included (when applicable). PDFs of singer parts for projection and reproducible options are also included. Audio files with only the second vocal part recorded provide an opportunity to sing the primary vocal part independently while listening to the second vocal part. Once young singers have the melody in the ear, move to singing without the recorded vocals, or keep it simple and sing along and play. Experience 12-bar blues, scat singing, call and response, improvisation, swing, New Orleans Second Line, and more. Above all, have fun and swing! Songs include: Jungle Jazz, Jungle Jam, Five Little Monkeys, Shoo Fly, Miss Mary Mack, I'm So Sorry, My Friend/Let's Celebrate, Singing This Song, and a 12-Bar Blues in C activity. (Grades 1-5)
Handbook will contain the online access code.
