I am a General Music & Chorus teacher in the Chicago area. I have been teaching for close to 20 years.
I am slowly beginning to share some of the arrangements I have created over the years, to be used with my students in the Music classroom, as well as in our concerts.
This particular arrangement was part of a concert of Patriotic music, and was performed by 1st Graders.
The package includes the following:
• 4 page booklet (title page, teaching guide, lyrics, instrument parts)
• 8 slide PowerPoint for lyric projection in the classroom
• full-band, high-quality, original accompaniment (mp3 format)
The teaching guide offers detailed, step-by-step directions for preparing and teaching the song.
The accompaniment is a high-quality, studio-produced recording. It comes in mp3 format.
Please know that the recording does not include a Voice Demo. The lead part is played on a piano patch, so it is quite easy for the students to follow the tune.
I am slowly adding more arrangements from this concert and also from other concerts and classroom activities. I should have some package offers soon, which will include multiple songs for a discounted price.
This song can be used with or without the instrumental parts. If the teacher has no access to the suggested instruments, additional hand motions should be created and used to fill in the instrumental sections.
