This ever-popular resource now includes more songs and more instructional directions for teachers. Great Big House! (3rd Edition) is a collection of folk songs of various cultures, arranged for Orff instruments, recorder, and voices. 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 combined, 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. The Title Work, "Great Big House" won 2nd place (USA) in the 2011 Sonor-Orff Instrument Composition Challenge.
While there is great deal of music literacy and musicianship that students 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!
