I teach a couple of mixed-age, mixed ability keyboard ensembles. Finding suitable mixed-age, mixed-ability ensemble music is a perennial challenge.
The BBC Ten Pieces resources includes several arrangements of classical music for ocarinas, and I have selected the Mozart Horn Concerto for the older group. It is arranged in 4 parts, ranging from tricksy to simple – just the job. You can find it here… a plethora of parts for orchestral instruments. Keep scrolling down, and you will find a link for the ocarina parts and also an mp3 backing.
I might introduce it to the class by letting them hear the famous Flanders and Swann version first. I’m not sure we’ll play it as fast as that!
