These ten hymn arrangements are for voice (either solo or unison group singing) with chord accompaniment using 8-note Boomwhackers® and an optional easy Piano accompaniment. The following pages provide several options for learning, teaching, and enjoying these timeless hymns.
Each of the 10 arrangements is also available separately with accompanying preview pages and audio samples. Those new to using Boomwhackers® or reading music may want to begin with the easiest song which is “Lord, I Want to Be a Christian.” This song only uses 2 chords. For those already familiar with note reading, rhythms, and Boomwhackers®, the most challenging arrangement of the 10 is “We Gather Together” with 7 chords and quick switching between chords.
Titles in this collection include:
Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing
He Leadeth Me
Holy, Holy, Holy
I Sing the Mighty Power of God
Jesus Loves Me
Jesus Paid It All
Lord, I Want to Be a Christian
Revive Us Again
We Gather Together
Worthy Is the Lamb
This packet includes the following pages for each of the ten hymns:
* chord chart using colored noteheads corresponding to the Boomwhackers® color system
* 2-page combined score with the melody (for voice with the lyrics for one verse) on the top staff and Boomwhackers® 3-note chords on the bottom staff
* 1-page melody staff with lyrics and chord names (referring to the chord chart, follow the chord names above the staff to whack out the beats in each measure using the corresponding Boomwhackers®
* 1-page with lyrics and chords for multiple verses divided into beats (referring to the chord chart, whack out the beat using the corresponding chord indicated above each syllable, word, or phrase); this page is most useful once the melody and rhythm have been learned
* 1-page piano accompaniment score (the right hand plays the melody, especially helpful if the melody is unfamiliar)
These hymn arrangements provide an excellent teaching tool for families, schools, churches, and other children’s ministries. Children will enjoy learning the lyrics and tunes of these classic hymns while accompanying themselves by whacking out chords with the Boomwhackers®. Frequent use of these songs will store the hymns’ messages in their memory which they will cherish throughout their lifetime.
Other suggestions and uses:
* have the melody played by other instruments such as handbells, xylophones, glockenspiels, or recorders; alternate singing one verse with playing an instrument on the melody for a second verse
* use multiple sets of Boomwhackers® to amplify the sound and allow more people to enjoy whacking the tubes
* 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, just to name a few
