Ring, Sing & Play!
By Kerri Lynn Nichols
51 pages

Chime bars can be used to motivate students and teach academic concepts from the curriculum. They can provide fun activities that involve everyone regardless of age and skill. They are particularly suited for those who may face special challenges. Their lightness, soft resonance and ease of use make them perfect for adaptive educational settings. In retirement communities, playing chime bars offers the perfect balance between social-emotional stimulation and mental challenge while emphasizing the joy of connecting with others.

By color coding the chime bars for chordal harmonies, players can accompany many folk and popular songs from around the world. For example, green is used for C major, red for F major and blue for G major. The book includes games and activities, movement activities and orchestrations using the chime bars. The orchestrations also include voice, small unpitched percussion instruments, soprano recorder, Orff instruments and bass bars. Traditional songs and 4 original songs are used.
