Whacky Do Re Mi And Other Boomwhacker® Favorites
From Plank Road Publishing
A Collection For Boomwhackers®, Voices, And Other Instruments
by Teresa and Paul Jennings
We've featured several songs in Music K-8 that use Boomwhackers®, and they have turned out to be some of our most popular songs ever. We've assembled them in this collection. The songs are:
- Whacky Do Re Mi - Here's a new and "whacky" way to teach solfege! Your students will have a great time singing and moving to the beat.
- Whomp Out Loud - The idea of this song is to make a whole lot of musical sound "out loud." It's a concept borrowed from the performing group Stomp. It's written for voices, Boomwhackers®, and non-pitched "found" percussion. Add these newly created sounds to the Boomwhackers® (and the recording), and you'll have quite an amazing percussive event.
- Ten Little Robots - This neat piece is written for voices and Boomwhackers®. It works well as a counting song, and it inspires creative learning and originality.
- 2001 Kazoos - We've re-orchestrated the opening to the dramatic tone poem Also Sprach Zarathustra to include kazoos and Boomwhackers®!
- Whacky Sounds - This incredibly fun piece uses the building and unbuilding technique by combining voices and Boomwhackers®. It's entertaining and challenging for kids to learn which pitches are theirs and when they should play.
