  • “Let’s play boomwhackers” is a book by Effie Bachtsevana with a simple and fun method to teach, learn and play the boomwhackers. It includes a collection of 81 songs to sing and play with boomwhackers and Orff instruments as well as a play-along cd
  • Let’s play ΒΟΟΜWHACKERS is addressed to educators of all levels, nursery and kindergarten teachers, musicians, parents, organisers of team building activities, as an initial contact with Boomwhackers (BW).
  • Boomwhackers are the easiest, handiest and most enjoyable musical equipment for day care centres, kindergartens, schools, elementary music classes, conservatories, teacher training schools, vocational training institutions, language schools.
  • The tunes suggested are simple, easy, clear, and can be played by anyone, of any age. They constitute a pioneering teaching method, using a combination of boomwhackers and English. All the songs are in English.
  • To play the songs in this book you need at least one diatonic set of boomwhackers (BW), constituting a full C Major scale. Hand out the BW and have the children form a circle or semicircle.
  • Start each song by clapping out the rhythm. First come the rhythmic values and then the notes. Once the children have learned to clap the rhythm and sing the notes, add the words, and lastly the ΒW. Each child is usually given two BW, starting with the two notes G (Sol) and E (Mi). The other notes are then added gradually, in step with the child’s progress.

Σχετικά με τον συγγραφέα

  • Effie Bachtsevana was born in Melbourne and at the age of ten moved with her family to Thessaloniki. When she was still very young she decided that she wanted to do something with music, and so began her thrilling exploration of the wonderful world of music. For the past 18 years she has worked continuously in public and private conservatories, day care centres, and as head of music and kinetics at various vocational training institutions.
  • She loves children, and is constantly seeking out new paths and creative inspirations, so as to pass her joy in music on to them. Boomwhackers are a landmark in her musical journey, for they are indisputably an inventive answer to the question “music or play?”
  • Having seen how enthusiastically children respond to boomwhackers, in 2012 she created a “Boomwhacker Οrchestra” for children aged 5-12 at the Neapolis-Sykies Municipal Conservatory, which already has a host of performances to its credit. She has also succeeded in introducing  the boomwhackers method into the municipality’s day care centres. Boomwhackers were enthusiastically embraced by her pupils in elementary music classes, where for four years now this is the only method she uses. Since 2012 she has given seminars for pre-school and primary school teachers on the use of the system.
  • Students of all ages from her various classes have appeared with her on television programmes and in performances at the Thessaloniki Children’s Museum, the Teloglion Foundation, bookshops, libraries and art centres.
  • The experience she has accumulated over her career has taught her that a child can discover the secret of happiness only when he truly loves what he wants.
