Description

Merry Christmas! A free version for your off staff readers to try! Both finger numbers and letter versions included, my gift to you. I hope your early beginner students enjoy.

Ho, ho ho! Can you hear someone popping up the chimney? With staccato's throughout and even a fun glissando at the end, students will enjoy playing Pop Up the Chimney during the holidays. This version is an early elementary off staff (fingers/letters) level. With only 9 pops, it's also perfect to use with smaller pop toys.

Whether it's a Pop It toy, Bubble Wrap or Balloons! Your students are going to have a poppin' good time with these pieces!

Not enough "bubbles" on your pop toy? Quickly turn it over!

Unlimited Studio License- This is a single teacher license. Use this resource for all your students. If you have other teachers in your studio, you can purchase additional licenses at a lower cost.

Keep in mind, the "Pop with Music" pieces are a little more challenging than they look because of the added element of the pop! But that is what makes these pieces all the more fun!

When to pop? You will see the words “Pop” above or below the clef. The rhythm of the pops will be shown as rhythm “slashes”.

What to Pop? Anything that pops! Pop it toys, bubble wrap, balloons, etc.

Tip! When using a Pop It toy, make sure you are popping on the side that has more of a ”staccato” Pop feel. Versus a “legato” Pop feel.

Where to place the Pop Item? Play around with the best place to put the item you will be popping. Ie: Try on the music rack versus on the bench. (on the keys does not work well). Each student should play around and see what works best for them.

Adapt!

These pieces are very adaptable. Some ways you can adapt are:

  • Rote- If you are giving a piece to a beginner, you can teach the main melody and popping by rote.
  • Create a duet- If piece is two hands and playing with both hands is too much, teacher can play the left hand and student can play the melody and pops!
  • Partner Pop- If popping is too much, the teacher or someone else can pop!

Which hand will do the pops? That is up to you! I made suggestions based on the clef, but It will depend where you place your pop item. So do what is best for you!

Have a Poppin’ good time!

Jingle Pop (14 Pops) Who can hear the ringing and popping in this new Pop with Music piece, Jingle Pop? You may easily guess the inspiration for this piece from the title, but the melody will take you in a different direction. This piece will be a fun favorite for the elementary level.

Pop Up the Chimney– (9 Pops) Regular On Staff version!

I Want a Pop Toy for- (9 Pops) Christmas, Hanukkah, Birthday… Fill in the blank for I Want a Pop Toy for________. Whatever the reason, the lyrics says it all! Hold out the fermata as long as you want for dramatic affect! This piece is an elementary level. With only 9 pops, it’s also perfect to use with smaller pop toys.

Carol of the Pops (26 Pops) is inspired by the ever popular piece Carol of the Bells. It starts in 4/4 time and then switches over to 3/4 and back. While this is leveled for early intermediates, elementary students might be able to enjoy them as a duet or partner pop  Warning, this may turn into an “ear worm” piece that students will want to play over and over again.

Poppin’ Around the Christmas Tree(16 Pops) Forget the rockin’, it’s time to start poppin’! Poppin’ Around the Christmas Tree is a fun upbeat piece, with plenty of staccato’s and some swing rhythms (dotted quarters, 8ths). While this is leveled for early intermediates, elementary students might be able to enjoy them as a duet or partner pop.

Popping Those Winter Blues Away– (20+ Pops) It’s time to start Popping Those Winter Blues Away. A nice bass pattern and easy going melody with some fun syncopated rhythms. Take your time with this one and just enjoy. If students have any “leftover” pops in their pop it toy, there is an option at the end to pop the rest away. (see video for example) While this is leveled for early intermediates, elementary students might be able to enjoy them as a duet or partner pop.
