This ever-popular resource is now UPDATED to include more songs and more instructional tips/directions for teachers. Great Big House! SECOND EDITION is a collection of folk songs of various cultures, arranged for Orff instruments, recorder, and voices and designed to be learned in a short amount of time. Students will love these classroom-tested arrangements, and you will find them to be useful for both the classroom and in live performance.
Each arrangement combines simple parts that when put together create a rich musical texture. This approach creates works that can be learned by a general music class or special performance ensemble while also being worthy of concert programming with high audience-appeal.
While there is much that the student will gain through performing these works, these songs are simply fun to play. Both the student and teacher will find them highly rewarding. GREAT BIG HOUSE will make a worthy addition to your library of classroom and performance resources!
