This flexible, fun set includes a small Color Chord-inated chart for projecting or printing, four large chord sheets to create a poster, sheet music for recorder and ukulele, and instructions.
Children (or adults) can easily sing and accompany themselves on bells or Boomwhackers to spread holiday cheer or perform in an assembly or program with minimal preparation. With the additional sheet music for recorder and ukulele, you can create an impressive performance piece, combining / alternating vocal and instrumental sections, and perhaps involving several classes.
This song is in the key of G, perfect for voices as well as recorder and quite easy on the ukulele as well. The bell or Boomwhacker notes needed are: G, A, B, C, C#, D, E, F#. (The sharps are thirds of 7th-chords, so you could get away without using these, but of course, it sounds better with them.) The recorder melody range is from D to d' and uses F# (no F natural).
I have used Kids Play® Hand Bells colors in the chord chart; however, you can easily use/include Boomwhackers® because the color system is similar to that of the hand bells, and I have included letter names in the note heads.
I will be posting several more of this type of arrangement, so please check back. And while you're here, please check out my additional Boomwacker and bells resources. Please message me with any requests for holiday performance pieces, and I will be glad to accommodate. Thank you for your interest and support.
