This product uses a “non-music reading” approach. While it could be used as an accompaniment for singing, it is written in order to be played as an ensemble piece. It contains the entire melody and accompaniment.
While music theory is taught and reviewed, this approach gives students a sense of accomplishment in learning to “read and perform” in a short period of time. Students enjoy this feeling of “playing in an ensemble.”
Hope your students enjoy playing and performing this piece. It was always well received when I used Tone Chime/Resonator Bells pieces in our concerts. Have fun performing! Joyce
