You’ll love bringing chimes in to teach your Easter songs it’s the perfect instrument for the season! This printable Easter Hosanna Pipe Chimes chart covers the chorus to help the chorus have a special and unique feeling!
Easter Hosanna Pipe Chimes
How to Play:
Sing through Easter Hosanna once, before introducing the chimes.
Lay your chimes down on the holders and play the chime chorus with your pianist. There are just 14 notes for the chorus.
Do you have a set of pipe chimes? They’re a great instrument to add to your collection and they’re pretty affordable, too. You can get a set of 28 different pipe chimes with Musical Pipes Etsy shop.
Grab the set of Pipe Chimes Music Note Cards to easily and quickly make your own chime charts for ANY song easily! Just use your white board or chalkboard to write the lyrics or keywords and line up your note cards.
You will need 5 kids to help you play the chimes. Or, in a smaller Primary you can use 4 kids and have one of the children play both #15 and #8 which are only played once.
As the music leader, you’ll point to the note in sequence of when to play each note. Each child will hold one chime holding by the string at the top and being careful not to touch the chime.
The children will watch for their specific number and strike the chime with one swift tap. The notes follow along with the piano accompaniment. You can play the piano or just use the chimes, whichever works best for you.
Everyone sings along with the song and pick new helpers after each time through the song until everyone gets a chance to chime the bells! Since the chimes are only for the chorus, that the children will learn quickly, you’ll get in lots of singing repetition on the verses while adding in some fun for the chorus!
*Note: There is one different note in the repeating chorus, so you’ll play note #15 the first time through and then #12 the second time through.
- You might see if you can get special permission to play the chimes for the chorus if singing this song for Easter!
- Add just one chime at a time. I recommend starting with chime #12, but you can let your volunteer pick from the available chimes. Now, add another chime number and have two helpers participate!
- Stand to sing the chorus and give it all the extra emphasis you can! Have the children sing it out like a Hosanna shout and see if the rooms nearby can hear them sing!
