Product Description

Composed for Orff Instruments, “An Island Girl Goes To Alabama” is an arrangement that uses the folk song, Alabama Gal, but with a Caribbean flair, creating a unique stylistic treatment of the melody. Syncopation is the music theory instructional objective. Every part represents some form of syncopation, thus creating an effective tool in teaching the concept and application of syncopation in music. There is a body percussion section that creates a great contrast and adds a Spanish Flamenco style moment in the the arrangement.
