As an experienced classroom music teacher, two of the main difficulties I have faced have been:

* having the time to arrange music for standard classroom instruments such as keyboards, ukuleles, guitars, tuned percussion etc.

* finding suitable arrangements of Western Classical pieces to contribute to a broad and balanced curriculum

The Classroom Ensemble Series meets both of these problems head on, providing approachable yet challenging arrangements which are tailor-made for a large classroom ensemble. Each piece includes a score and parts as follows:

Melody (treble clef)

Melody plus note names (treble clef)

Melody (ukulele tab)

Melody (guitar tab)

Bass part (bass clef)

Bass part plus note names (bass clef)

Bass part (bass guitar tab)

Easy piano part (treble and bass clefs)

Standard piano part (treble and bass clefs)

Chords (chord shapes with chord names, e.g. Dm)

Chords (ukulele tabs and chord shapes)

Chords (guitar tabs and chord shapes)

This arrangement of March Of The Toy Soldiers enables all students within a classroom, regardless of ability, to make clear progress on one or more of the parts provided. You can use the YouTube video above as a backing track within the classroom, helping the students to play together and freeing you up to teach. Or you can lead the session yourself.

Backing tracks for all other pieces in this series can be found at
