Wow! This is the powerpoint that never ends! 121 slides! I just love to make PowerPoints! "Water Bound" is a traditional Appalachian folk song. I needed a simple arrangement for a themed concert for second grade and the students enjoyed this so much I had to share! This resource contains a ppt with embedded audio accompaniment, broken into 14 mini 15-minute lessons for Orff/ Xylophones, and Three 45 minutes lessons for Appalachian Dulcimer, geared towards older learners. The melody is arranged simply with bass and small percussion for accompaniment. I changed the rhythm of the melody to make playing easier for second-grade learners. The powerpoint includes a brief history, activities for rhythm and solfege reading, melody blocks for rote learning, and dulcimer tab. The Orff arrangement is in the key of C and the dulcimer arrangement is in the key of D. The dulcimer lesson also includes chording for D, A, and G chords.
