Zin! Zin! Pop!
"Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin" written by Lloyd Moss and Illustrated by Marjorie Price is featured in this music experience. After an introduction to the 10 instruments included in this narrative (trombone, trumpet, French horn, cello, violin, flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, and harp), the story is read with musical accompaniment that follows the storyline. The progression of solo trombone through a chamber group of ten is imitated in the music with variations on "Pop Goes the Weasel"arranged by Debbi Ponella. The music explores the timbres and range of the various instruments and how they work together to create a variety of styles. This is an excellent way for young students to connect literature and music in an interactive environment.
