This sheet music is notated for 8-note (one octave, C major diatonic scale) instruments with handbells on one staff and Boomwhackers® on a second staff creating an instrumental ensemble. Handbells play the melody while the Boomwhackers® keep a steady beat with two-note chords. Included in this set of scores is a 1-page combined score with both parts on a grand staff plus a separate 1-page, 1-staff score for each instrument (for a total of 3 pages of music).
This set of scores uses colored noteheads corresponding to the Boomwhackers® color scheme. Handbells sold by "Rhythm Band" or "KidsPlay" also use this same color scheme (other brands may use different color schemes). Using color coded notes helps beginning musicians learn to read standard sheet music notation. This set of scores is also available (separate purchase) in black and white which will print clearer if you do not have access to a color printer.
The number of ringers and whackers needed will vary depending on the skill level of the participants. For more advanced players, each person could be assigned two or three notes. For beginners, it is best to assign one note to each person. Instrument assignment suggestions are provided on the last page.
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, just to name a few
Permission is granted to make up to 10 copies of each score. For more than 10 copies, please purchase additional sets.
