Teaching Concepts: meter & tempo changes, slur vs. tongue, articulations, accidentals, fermati
Recall the charm of Canterbury with this arrangement of three traditional English Christmas carols - The Holly and the Ivy, Good King Wenceslas, and We Wish You a Merry Christmas. All of the wind sections get a turn at the melodies and there is an advanced percussion 1 part (snare drum) that incorporates rolls and flams for percussionists who are a little more advanced. Each carol ends with a fermata giving your students a chance to adjust to the new meter, style, and tempo. A great teaching piece and solid arrangement of traditional Christmas carols. (1:40)
