(Grades 4-8) Explore more classical "hits" from music history with these fun and creative arrangements for playing along with the masters! Students accompany each of the 8 compositions using Boomwhackers, xylophones and other classroom instruments. The classical melodies can be performed from the piano arrangements or the enclosed professionally-produced CD for added play-along excitement! All of these arrangements use the C Major Diatonic Scale set of Boomwhackers. For further value, instrument parts are all reproducible. Easy-to-follow teaching instructions and reproducible information sheets about the composers and compositions provide even more educational opportunities. Perfect for performance and classroom, your students will ask to play this music again and again, while learning from the masters!
