Written by educational advisors from the Somme music department in France, this compilation presents 17 songs of different musical styles intended for all the students in primary school. Each composition comes with the score and chords, the lyrics and an educational sheet. The authors suggest many themes and complementary activities linked with the musical genre of every song.
There is a song for Christmas, one for Halloween, two for Memorial Day with one of them in canon, as well as one in English. The songs were chosen to allow the exploration of each one’s particular musical style, for example Louis Armstrong’s When the Saints go Marching reflects the swing of Elmer, the multicolored elephant.
The CD includes the vocal and instrumental versions for each song.
