Brought to You By… is a very funny musical revue accompanied by Orff instruments. Sure to be a hit with teachers and students alike, this new musical features 30 minutes of commercials uninterrupted by regular programming! The commercials may be presented in their entirety or performed separately as humorous inserts for school concerts or programs. Students and audiences will laugh hysterically over "Couch Potato Workout-Infomercial," "What's My Line, Anyway?," and six other commercials containing 23 musical numbers, 15 of which include vocals -- all unison plus one canon. A variety of musical styles include blues, rock, folk, and commercial jingles. "The Note Name Blues" and "The Treble Clef Rock" make reviewing note names and the treble staff lots of fun. Simple staging, costume, and props suggestions are provided. The book is divided into three sections: 1. Complete script with all music and stage directions. 2. Teaching suggestions and reproducible visuals. 3. Reproducible student's script.
