This holiday spectacular brings together kazoos, Boomwhackers®, and a host of favorite classroom instruments.
For this extravaganza, we have taken "The Twelve Days Of Christmas" and adapted the lyrics for each instrument or group of instruments ("... and a partridge in a pear tree" becomes "... and kazoos of red and green"). After each instrument's mention in the song, there is a short interlude that allows the instrument to play, and it proceeds as the cumulative song we all know and love. It features drums, jingles, rhythm sticks, shakers, triangles, Boomwhackers®, kazoos, and more.
To make sure that this works for a wide variety of schools, we offer pages of special instructions for using the instruments, including substitutes, and even options for making your own instruments. The kit also includes a score for the teacher and reproducible parts for singers and instrumentalists. The recorded tracks are outstanding, featuring a full orchestra playing a clever orchestration by Paul Jennings. This is a work that's guaranteed to be a favorite of students and audiences alike.
