Sweet Georgia Brown - Downloadable Noodle Toonz Single
From Plank Road Publishingadapted/arr. Paul Jennings and Teresa Jennings
"Sweet Georgia Brown" keeps all three percussion instruments in unison rhythms throughout. Mainly offbeats are played to match the bright swing style of the accompaniment. The Chime Plate is the most challenging part because it switches between the three methods of playing the instrument: resonant, muted, and ratchet-like. Feel free to adapt any and all of the parts for your players as needed. Please note: this single is included with Music K-8, Vol. 32, No. 1.
Noodle Toonz™ singles are written for a group of three lighthearted and unusual instruments: Noodle Blocks, Rhythm Sticks, and Chime Plate with Bolt Striker. Handy Noodle Kits™ (sold separately) include these three instruments and are available at MusicK8.com You can also use similar sounding percussion instruments if you already have them available.
This downloadable single includes full performance and accompaniment only MP4 video files for your students to watch, listen, and play along with. The videos show the scrolling accompaniment score along with three color-coded student parts. This single also includes full, accompaniment, and student parts only MP3 tracks, as well as printable B&W PDFs of the individual student parts.
