Teacher book and CD
Grades 3 - 6
Welcome to Ireland where music is everywhere, from concert halls, schools and restaurants to melody-making on street corners! Bring the traditions and tunes of the enchanted isle right to your classroom! Sample some of Ireland's rich musical heritage with its lively jigs and reels. Sing and learn to play authentic Celtic instruments, and experience the songs and sounds that give Irish music its unique flavor. Watch professional musicians demonstrate the bodhrán, spoons (or bones) and tin whistle, and perform an entire Irish piece.
The all-in-one Book/CD includes helpful step-by-step learning suggestions, piano/vocal arrangements, reproducible songsheets and instrument parts, along with suggestions on how to use the instruments you already have in place of the Irish instruments. The Enhanced CD features performance and accompaniment tracks for each song, PDFs of melodies and instrument parts, and a short video demonstration.
