Let It Go- Melody for Band Instruments
Disclaimer: I do not own the song, nor did I write the original. I’m just a band teacher who arranged some music to make my students happy and get them learning off beat counting! I hope your students enjoy this piece as much as mine did!
In this package you get to teach the song to your students in stages- starting with the supplementary materials pack. In this first sheet your students will learn about the key of Concert Db (which is often unfamiliar to students) and four of the main rhythms in Let It Go broken into rhythms A-D.
You can have the students clap, speak or sizzle the rhythms, play one yourself and have them guess which letter it is or have different sections perform them.
After they have mastered the rhythms and scale, bust out the main melody music sheet! Your low brass might find this one particularly challenging due to range, but it gives them something to work toward.
The last piece of the puzzle is of course an arrangement playable by the full band as a fun warm up piece or a pop fit for your next concert.
Hope you enjoy!
