Bells and chimes are accessible instruments that can be used to teach ostinati, chords, simple accompaniments, and basic small-group composition along with music literacy. Teachers can combine these instruments with unison and part-singing, recorders, Orff instruments, and movement. This book provides fresh ideas for children to actively make their own music and accompany their own singing. Most of these activities will translate easily to a performance situation without requiring students to have individual scores in front of them. For teachers with large music classes, the activities involve everyone simultaneously, i.e., we play, you sing, they move, and we ALL make music! DVD includes electronic visuals in PowerPoint, ActiveInspire and SMART Notebook formats.
