What level is this bundle?
No School on Halloween:
The smallest rhythmic value in No School on Halloween is the quarter note. While it does not have eighth notes, the chorus does contain a fun hands together passage that is great for the developing elementary student. This piece modulates through different keys, but all the accidentals are written in, making it easy to read and learn.
No School on Halloween has an exciting glissando at the end of this piece! In addition, the first two pages create an easy, but slow-building intensity that is unusual in early level pieces. Plus there is also a hand over hand arpeggio in the piece. The right hand also plays notes in the bass clef in the chorus for a deep and mature sound.
The smallest rhythmic value in Scatterbrained Scarecrow is the eighth note. There are a few shifting meters in the piece, but these are easily executed as there are no long notes or rests to hold or count.
Bonus mp3 recordings included
To help your students learn the pieces, we are including mp3 recordings of both pieces. You are welcome to send these to students you directly teach who are learning the pieces. These recordings are created without voiceovers and without lyrics so that the articulations and nuances are easy to hear and mimic.
Both pieces contain many opportunities to hone student’s skills in staccato, legato, and accents.
