Various Composers : Singbook

Review: Youth Music's Singbook is an essential, inspirational resource for all singing leaders working with children and young people and contains twelve songs by some of the most exciting songwriters and lyricists working today, including Howard Goodall, Steve Martland, Richard Stilgoe, Lin Marsh and Barry Russell. It explores a wide range of musical styles and topics, to inspire all young people from keystages 2 to 4, and celebrates our culturally diverse community: from Gujarati, Chinese and Albanian songs to music by some of the UK's best-known songwriters. Each song is presented as a complete 'unit', fully supported by interviews with the composers, with learning strategies, warm ups and creative music-making ideas. Photocopiable vocal parts and lyric sheets have additional questions and starting points to help singers get to grips with the meaning of each song. Singbook is stunningly produced in full color throughout, with two professionally produced CDs of complete performances and backing tracks of the songs. The book has been carefully graded and color-coded into three levels - starting, developing and challenging - from songs in unison to those sung in parts. The book also includes a dedicated section on warm ups, with a wide range of material to complement the songs and encourage good singing practice.

Songlist: Refuge, Ame sau vala tara bal , The Smile Behind The Eyes, Believe, Building, Hey, Escher!, Vera, OK, The Tyger, Mo Li Hua, Harmony, No Wars Will Stop Us Singingf
