Brought to you by Kodaly Music With Mrs Perry, this Halloween song can be used for many things. This arrangement offers:
MELODY: Students tap on a note and it will change color, allowing assessment of melodic understanding. Focus on low la and minor. Flute accompaniment is provided when you tap on a big bone.
RHYTHM: The song is in 6/8 time. Rhythm is presented within bones. Each rib bone is an eighth note. Tap above the text and the bones are highlighted. When there a syllable has the rhythm of a quarter note or half note, the ribs are connected by color. You can have students tie them together as a review of notation or have the students actually notate the rhythm.
ACCOMPANIMENT: There is an accompaniment provided when you tap on the big bone. It is a flute playing the melody. In addition, there are parts for a xylophone and tambourine.
