Australian Works Analysed in this Kit
||Boojum! (1977) by Martin Wesley-Smith and Peter Wesley-Smith|
Composer Martin Wesley-Smith and teacher Kim Waldock have written an imaginative set of musical activities around Boojum!, Wesley-Smith's nonsensical musical comedy based on Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark.
Aimed at years 7-10, the kit explores well-known songs such as I'm a Caterpillar of Society (Not a Social Butterfly) from the perspective of composition, performance and analysis. Looking at six numbers from Boojum! in concert, the kit builds into a survey of song writing styles in contemporary musical theatre, and makes comparisons with both twentieth-century and more traditional styles.

Double compact disc of Boojum!; Background notes on Martin and Peter Wesley-Smith, Boojum!, and musical theatre in general; Booklet of score extracts; Photocopiable worksheets; Teacher's text; Six-week lesson plan covering the main elements of the syllabus
