"Music to inspire and nourish the soul."

Clefs, Measures, Notes, and Rests

"Clefs, Measures, Notes, and Rests" was written for the Music Class for Young Children that I teach. The purpose of this song is to teach musical terminology and signs to children. The format—or arrangement—of the song is what I call leader/echo. This means that a person who is the leader sings a line, and the children echo both the lyrics and melody the leader sang. This song has been very helpful for teaching children the musical concepts that it covers.
Vocal Range: bb - c2
Arrangement: Leader/echo
