Classroom arrangements / arrangements prepared by Philip Cooney.
Eleven arrangements for the secondary school classroom of works
by Australian composers, designed to complement the study of
Australian music by allowing students to perform the musical
examples that they explore through listening and composition
activities. Each arrangement contains a musical theme, available
for performance by most instruments, together with an
accompaniment based on the original piece. To assist with
differentiation according to student ability a simplified part is
also included, which may be transposed for other instruments, if
These arrangements are not intended as replacements for the original pieces or for concert performance but are intended to enhance the learning of students and the quality of a school's music program.
The arrangements are:
Matthew Hindson RPM ; Elena Kats-Chernin Our Bridge Overture ; Graeme Koehne Powerhouse ; James Ledger Indian Pacific ; Peter Sculthorpe From Kakadu ; Peter Sculthorpe Left Bank Waltz ; Peter Sculthorpe Music for Bali ; Peter Sculthorpe Port Arthur: in Memoriam ; Peter Sculthorpe Small Town ; Paul Stanhope Helter Skelter ; Carl Vine V .
