This arrangement is based on the melody of Saint Saens' Danse Macabre and can be played as a stand alone melody suitable for 3rd-5th grade general music students or as a two part arrangement with any combination of Orff instruments. My 3rd and 4th graders have learned the melody in 2-3 10 minute practice sessions and are enjoying it very much. They love the words that go with the melody which make it a snap to teach by rote. This download has the musical notation score for the teacher and the words and letters for students to view.
