TACOCAT: Palindrome for Band (Flex Band)




Originally developed as part of our 2020 Virtual Band Consortium. This Grade 2 Flex Band work by Ben Hylton is built around the concept of palindromes, phrases that sound the same both backwards and forwards. Have your students try to find the palindromes in their parts or even have them compose some short palindrome melodies. A few phrases Includes some optional “cat” vocals that your students can have fun with!

Cinematic backing tracks are included at different tempi so that your students can practice along for more fun and even record themselves along with the track for video assignments or projects.

All Virtual Files allow you to share with your students digitally.
