This version of “Let’s Go Band” for clarinet is my favorite thing to do with my clarinets at the end of the year!
Now, I know what you’re thinking.
Let’s Go Band?
But I promise this version is a great TEACHING version! I made it a couple years ago in May – I loved it and the kids really loved it!
Here’s what it teaches/reviews:
- Chromatic Fingerings – Woohoo! After drilling these chromatic fingerings all year, the kids get to use them in a super fun song. Here’s what it covers:
- sk F#
- outside left C#
- Banana F#
- Banana B natural
- Range – The last line takes the kids up to a high C# & D above the staff. Most years I get to that on the chromatic, but if you haven’t yet, this is a way to introduce it. If only a couple of your kids are ready for it, you can have most of the kids play line #2 again while the ones that are ready can go for #5.
