by John Riggio
Many recorder units are just getting underway as the Christmas season rolls around, so John Riggio has created a unique new collection of seasonal music that can be performed with just the notes B, A, and G.
If you have used John's compositions and arrangements, you know that he brings his own special spice to each song. And as a recording producer, he is first-rate, so you know that your students will be playing along with exciting, contemporary settings of these tunes. It's a great way to let beginning players feel confident about their skills. And it's a great way to see that they are rewarded with a successful performance experience.
The kit includes a Teacher's Handbook with reproducible parts for your students and a CD that includes each song recorded twice: a full performance with a professional playing the melody as a good model for your students and just the accompaniment tracks by themselves.
This great new collection includes:
• Deck The Halls
• Fum Fum Fum
• Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring
• While By My Sheep
• God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen
• O Christmas Tree
