"HIT THE RIGHT NOTE"

How to use songs to learn melodic instruments

A CD/book with 25 songs that are good for learning instruments generally and xylophones keyboards and guitars in particular. There are five songs here that duplicate numbers on Bright Sparks but they are recorded again to help with playing instrumentally. Here are a few examples :

Arrabella Miller - a simple song that is very easy to play, partly because each note is repeated. It also works well as a hocket where two groups sing alternate words - (mp3, 1000 K)

Shoo Turkey (mp3, 305 K) - a lively action song that works particularly well with guitars as well as keyboards and xylophones. Allows beginners to join in a jam session.

Waterfall - a more advanced tune influenced by The Penguin Cafe Orchestra. Very popular at the school where I work (mp3, 1008 K)
