SKU: A0.1434412

By Amy Grant. By Michael Korb and Ulrich Roever. Arranged by Sharon Wilson. Celtic,Children,Holiday,Instructional,Irish,Multicultural,World. 43 pages. Sharon Wilson #1014590. Published by Sharon Wilson (A0.1434412).

This sheet music is notated for 13-note (one octave, C to C chromatic scale) instruments with Handbells on one staff and Boomwhackers® on a second staff creating an instrumental ensemble (requires one set of each instrument).

This arrangement includes two levels. One set is "EASY" with the Handbells playing only the melody notes and the Boomwhackers® keeping a steady rhythm using only quarter notes. The second set is "INTERMEDIATE" with the Handbells playing melody and harmony notes while the Boomwhackers® play a slightly more complex rhythm. For each level, there is a combined score with both instrument parts on a grand staff plus a separate score for each instrument. The audio sample has a sound clip from the EASY version and the YouTube video features the INTERMEDIATE level.

Two copies of each score are provided. The scores are identical except one uses color coded noteheads and the other uses black and white noteheads.  The score with colored noteheads corresponds to the Boomwhackers® color scheme.  If you have a set of bells or tubes with a different color scheme, "Chroma-Notes Stick Ons" can be purchased and applied so the instruments match the Boomwhackers® color scheme. Using color coded notes helps beginning musicians learn to read standard sheet music notation. The score with black and white notes will print clearer if you do not have access to a color printer or have a group of players already familiar with reading music notation.

Only filled noteheads (quarter and eighth notes) are used so the notes are full color and easier to distinguish (this does not indicate the bells need to be silenced immediately before the next beat). Also, only quarter rests are used to help visualize the number of beats per measure. All sharps and flats are displayed as well (shown in the key of C); a helpful reminder for beginning musicians.

Other suggestions and uses: 
* have both parts played by bells or both parts played using only Boomwhackers®     
* form a choir using multiple sets of bells and/or Boomwhackers® (this would amplify the sound and allow more people to participate)
* use as part of the music education for children at school, home, or church
* these colorful, inexpensive instruments can be enjoyed by all ages and add a fun, unique element to activities and programs: senior centers, family reunions, church retreats, home school groups, children’s ministries
