Orchestra Instrument Families - Approximate Pitches-Editable
This product will help you clearly show your students how instrument ranges cross over each other....it's pretty fun actually.
The product is multi-layered, multi-scene. Sorry, I don't have a better way to describe it. I guess you'll just have to download the preview to see it in action. :)
It's actually is from my guitar book. I believe in showing my students the entire "landscape". It just takes some of the mystery out of music in general. My students loved this page, which I found interesting, because I was teaching them guitar.
This is a continuation where The Grand Staff - Editable PowerPoint w/ Handouts
The file very simple to use, layers can be move around or deleted to suit your needs
and a PNG and JPEG in 300 dpi resolution is also included. You can use these images in a handout for your class.
You will see it all in the free demo:
Click on "Slide Show"/ "From The Beginning" in your PowerPoint program, then use the right arrow keys > on your keyboard.
The first thing you'll see is The Grand Staff. That's where we left off on "The Grand Staff" product I previously uploaded. Right arrow or click through the instrument families.
Flute and Piccolo
Accordian, Guitar and Harp (can be separated to it's own keys with a little bit of editing)
Or you can view the instrument families individually. For example:
Press 3 then "enter" = Strings
Press 5 then "enter" = Woodwinds
and so on...
In case your interested:
These products are quite a "turn" from my usual recorder sheet music as you well know. Here's my reason for uploading these products:
A few years ago I wrote 3 books for my guitar classes. I decided to never upload them because the world..doesn't need more guitar books. It already has plenty.
Instead I'm going to "sell them for parts" (ha, ha). I figured, I put a lot of work into them to help me teach, and there's no sense just to have it just sit on my computer. This product was a page from my books. It was actually a "hit" with my students. :)
So maybe some other teachers can use them. I hope you'll find them as useful and most of all effective, as I have.
