Jingle, Jingle Swing!

Feature your elementary choir this winter with one of these great octavos, as featured on Stanton’s Elementary General Music Clinic with Cristi Cary Miller:

Blizzard on the Way! by Jay Althouse
A 100% chance of precipitation equals a 100% chance of anticipation…that school will be closed! Your 2-part choirs will “dig in” when singing this driving, disco, wintertime hit.

The Christmas Clock arr. Cristi Cary Miller
Incorporating the tune of “Parade of the Wooden Soldiers” and telling a clever tale about a clock that runs only in the month of December, your young singers will enjoy counting down the days, minutes and hours until Christmas! Incredibly cute!

Jingle, Jingle Swing! arr. Ruth Morris Gray
This one is full of holiday fun! The familiar “Jingle Bells” text and tune are incorporated into this festive partner-style original. Add some jazzy swing to your holiday performance…and don’t forget the bells!

A Merry, Merry Christmas to You! by Douglas E. Wagner
Good wishes are sung to all in this festive offering that creatively incorporates the familiar “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” Accessible ranges and easy counterpoint make this seasonal winner a snap to learn and a joy to perform.
