About The Musicians Of Bremen
A poor old donkey is kicked out by his owner for being too old and worthless. Undeterred by this the donkey decides to make his way to Bremen to earn his living as a musician. Along the way he meets up with other unwanted animals and persuades them to accompany him. A house full of robbers eating a wonderful feast stops them in their tracks, and together they hatch a plan to 'sing' the robbers out of the house so that they can take up residence.
This little-known but delightfully comic fairytale provides wonderful scope for inventive percussion and music-making.
Far more than just a songbook, this series has been written for use in kindergarten and at home. Traditional, well loved stories re-told through a very simple script and just a few bite-size songs.
This delightful combination of ‘song and story’ will enliven and enrich learning, both in music and literacy, as well as give younger children a manageable experience of performing a mini-musical.
