12 familiar children’s songs, for use with Boomwhackers tuned percussion tubes. This system, an alternative to traditional music notation, uses color-coded squares and rectangles to introduce left to right reading, vertical relationships of pitch, and horizontal relationships of duration. The color of each note box matches the color of the corresponding Boomwhacker tube. By having a half-note rectangle that is twice as long as a square quarter-note box, children can easily learn to understand the relationships between note values. Tear-out song charts are ideal for laminating. The first verse of lyrics is included for each song. All songs in this book can be played using the diatonic set of Boomwhackers.
For pre-k to grade 2.
