Composed by Mykola Leontovich. Arranged by Sharon Wilson. Christian, Classroom, European, Christmas, Children's Music. Score, Set of Parts. 15 pages. Published by Sharon Wilson (S0.280783).
Item Number: S0.280783
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. Included in this set of scores is a 5-page combined score with both parts on a grand staff plus a separate 3-page, 1-staff score for each instrument.
This set of scores uses black and white noteheads and is best suited for musicians already familiar with reading standard music notation. For beginning musicians, this same set of scores is available (sold separately) with color coded noteheads.
Only filled noteheads (quarter and eighth notes) are used so the notes are 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.
Each instrument part uses the same 10 notes: C D E F F♯ G G♯ A B C* where C* is high C, one octave above middle C. Though this sheet music is notated for Handbells and Boomwhackers®, this arrangement is playable by any 13-note, C to C chromatic scale (one octave) instrument such as a xylophone or glockenspiel.
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 a total group size of 10 players. For beginners, it is best to assign one note to each person. At one note per person, a group of 20 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.
