PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This engaging, entertaining arrangement is based on the traditional poem by Clement C. Moore and the familiar tune, "Chopsticks," with additional lyrics by Jeri Crosby. It includes parts for voices, Orff instruments, and optional recorder, ukulele, bells or Boomwhackers™

This is a delightful teaching and performance piece for upper elementary and middle school students. The fun, familiar tune of "Chopsticks" invites students to explore and enjoy 6/8 meter. The ABA form and repeating accompaniment patterns make this much easier than it sounds, yet the options of adding recorder or the more challenging mallet parts (included) allow students to take it to the next level if ready. I have also included very simple chord accompaniment charts for ukulele, bells or Boomwhackers™.

This piece will involve your students in exploring 6/8 meter, melody, harmony, mallet technique, texture, form, recorder (optional), and chordal accompaniment.
