ADDITION OF SOLFEGE TO TUBE LABELS
Whacky Music decided to add solfege notation to the Boomwhackers Tube labels, using the "fixed do" system of C equals "do" (pronounced "doe"). 
In the fixed system, then, the normal note names and solfege equivalents look like this (using our Chroma-Notes™ Color System, of course!):
   
     
C

Do


Root

D

Re

Major
Second

E

Mi

Major
Third

F

Fa

Perfect
Fourth

G

Sol

Perfect
Fifth

A

La

Major
Sixth

B

Ti / Si *

Major
Seventh

C

Do

Perfect
Octave

   

* While "Ti" is appropriate and familiar for many countries, "Si" is used in many other countries, such as France.  So our "B" labels show both.

Additional information on solfege is available at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solfege.

 
 

INFORMATION ON CLASSROOM MATERIALS
FOR BOOMWHACKERS TUBES

There is a growing body of classroom materials designed for teaching with Boomwhackers Musical Tubes, including our very own line of Educational / Group Fun Materials - teacher designed, classroom tested and kid approved.  We have developed a full line of materials using several different teaching methods - all are fun, inspirational and effective.

Music teachers love the fact that the Boomwhackers Tubes can be used to teach all three primary musical elements: rhythm, melody, and harmony.  The different tones help children learn rhythms easily.  Groups can also play music note by note as a hand bell choir would.  The possibilities for making music are unlimited! 

Our Boom-a-Tunes Curriculum Series is designed for teaching standard music notation along with general music skills.  The Building Blocks Series can be used by anyone - non-musicians, activity leaders and professional music teachers alike. The same is true of the Color Signals and Notation Cards.
Additionally, all of the Tubular Songbooks can be used in any situation - with or without musical accompaniment - they all include CD's with the background music so anyone can play along.
