Small Ensemble Bells, Boomwhackers, Glockenspiel, Handbell, Handchime, Multi-Percussion, Orff Instrument, Xylophone - Level 2 - Digital Download
By Sharon Wilson. By James Lord Pierpont and Traditional. Arranged by Sharon Wilson Music. Children, Christmas, Folk, Instructional, Standards. Score and parts. 11 pages. Sharon Wilson #3406039. Published by Sharon Wilson (A0.565092).

Item Number: A0.565092

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. Included in this set of scores is a 3-page combined score with both parts on a grand staff plus a separate 2-page, 1-staff score for each instrument.

This arrangement requires one set of each instrument plus a set of octavator caps for the Boomwhackers®. The CHORUS uses only the 8-notes in the C to C diatonic scale, however, the VERSE requires 3 octavator caps for notes G, A, and B played by the Boomwhackers® during measures 19 through 31 (the score indicates when to add and remove the caps). The Handbells play the melody for the CHORUS while the Boomwhackers® provide rhythmic 2-note chords. For the VERSE, the Boomwhackers® play the melody while the Handbells provide single-note harmony.

Only filled noteheads (quarter and eighth notes) are used so the notes are full color and easier to see (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.

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 up to three notes for a total group size of 6 players. For beginners, it is best to assign one or two notes to each person. At one or two notes per person, a group of 8 to 16 players would be required. Note assignment suggestions are included.

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.
