Silly Songs & Sing-Alongs for Composers
New Lyrics to Old Favorites
By John Jacobson
Classroom Kit (Teacher Book and P/A CD)
56 pages
Grades 3 - 6

Did you know...Beethoven lost most of his hearing by the time he was an adult; Haydn's parents sent him off to study music at the age of six; Mozart was performing for kings and queens by age five?

Learn a wealth of interesting and fun facts about 10 famous composers with this delightfully whacky collection of familiar melodies set to new lyrics. Perform songs live with piano accompaniments. Interludes give a hint of the composer's styles. Choreography is also included along with reproducible lyric sheets.

Enhance learning further with reproducible composer bios and review questions and a comprehensive word search and crossword puzzle for a final check of the facts!

The kit also includes a Performance/Accompaniment CD.

Bach, the Great Composer  (to the tune of "London Bridge")
Fur Beethoven (to the tune of "Fur Elise")
Brahms (to the tune of "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling")

Every month, my students study, learn about, and listen to a famous composer. This book will help me to connect my composer choices with my students' silly sides. :)
