Boom-a-Tunes Vol. 1
Curriculum for Boomwhackers Musical Tubes
By Ellen Foncannon
Book and CD
61 pages
Grades K - 3

A comprehensive teaching program using Boomwhackers tuned percussion tubes. Educational lyrics introduce the location of notes on the treble staff and integrate singing and playing to involve the entire class. The colors of the different tubes are also used to help teach note recognition. 3/4 and 4/4 time signatures are also introduced.

The lesson plans and activities address the National Music Standards. Each song reinforces the location and identification of one or more notes; lesson/performance suggestions and a related activity are also given. Reproducible worksheets are also included. Piano scores are given to accompany each song; alternately, use the tracks on the included CD. All activities in this book use the diatonic set of Boomwhackers (item 200346, available separately).
