Partner Songs for the Whole Year Long - Teaching Part Singing for Elementary School Children This collection of Partner songs, rounds, and canons for children has been designed to bring to life the excitement of part singing for the young child.   It includes some original material, as well as clever pairings of traditional children's songs that are delightful to learn and sing, and a useful tool for introducing harmonization. Most songs are taught in typical partnership format; first one melody is introduced, then the second, then the two are put together to create harmony.  In the case of some rounds, there is an optional third part as well. 

Although the pieces may be used at any time during the year, the book is sequenced in chronological order to facilitate the learning process, and to match holidays and special occasions of the calendar year for which special music is often required (and sometimes difficult to find).  This book is flexible for classroom use or performance in schools and churches.  The skills of part singing your students will learn will become building blocks for great choral singing in the years to come!

Fun, upbeat accompaniment track is available allowing you freedom to conduct and teach, or to add that polished sound to your performance!
