Around the World We Go

If you have spent any time here you know how much I love songs from around the world.  I have two clapping song books from around the world, available from www.singsmileplay.com and am working on another book of singing games from around the world.  SO much wonderful material and so many pathways to take with each song. Will it be a focus on beat, a specific rhythm pattern, melodic direction, form, expressive elements.... the list goes on and on!

Today I have a song to go with the book, "Around the World We Go" by Margaret Wise Brown, author of "Goodnight, Moon".




Though I can't include the lyrics, here is the song with a very accessible arrangement for Orff instruments. Create a B Section with word chains using country names and you have a very playable piece to accompany the book!  Enjoy!
