Swingin' on the Bars
By Ronald Carter and Glenda Cosenza
Swingin' on the Bars is a collection of jazz standards arranged for xylophones, metallophones, solo Bb and Eb instruemtns, percussion, and voice. It was written to give middle school general music students the opportunity to learn about jazz using hands-on, performance-based activities. The Orff barred instruments provide a means for students with minimal instrumental training to experience jazz firsthand through direct experience and performance participation.
Presenting a variety of music arranged for Orff instrumentation in a swingin' style, this delightful collection is sure to engage your students' creativity while building musical skills. The sequence of tunes in this collection represents difficulty levels in terms of mallet technique requirements and challenges resulting from the level of harmonic complexity. Each piece is preceded by a suggested teaching sequence and listening resources.
