Peter Hunt : Voiceworks 2 - A Further Handbook for Singing

Voiceworks is a magnificent resource for promoting good singing in pre-schools, schools, community choirs, adult choirs and everywhere that people sing. The Voiceworks books (complete with CDs) are packed with songs and ideas which are practical, motivating, and accessible. Voiceworks 2 is a complete guide and support for anyone who encourages or teaches other people to sing well. Singing is learned behaviour, and Voiceworks 2 aims to help singers of all ages and experience improve their capability, to develop some techniques, and get pleasure from using their voices. It is claimed that the better people feel about their voices, the better they feel about themselves, so this book is more influential than just a singing book. The music is eclectic, chosen for its accessibility, and can be used progressively as laid out in the book to build confidence and develop vocal technique, or as a 'dip in' resource to suit particular needs.

Sweet Honey In The Rock : I Got Shoes : 00  1 CD : 42534

Sweet Honey In The Rock : I Got Shoes

This is a great recording for children to be introduced to music of African cultures, gospel, both traditional and original African-American children's songs and supportive songs for growing youngsters. "I Got Shoes" could well be considered for very young children. A series of five "African Numbers" has vocal backgrounds of African texture on top of which are counted numbers in English (1-20), Japanese (1-12), Swahili (1-8), French (1-10) and Spanish (1-16). There is a rap song featuring a refrain by the Sweet Honey In The Rock Children's Chorus which deals with ethics on a young persons level. It is entitled "Young and Positive" and tells kids that they are the future and how to keep their sights set high. There is the archetypical Sweet Honey message in "Freedom Train." The whole recording is like a composition that ends with one of the most beautiful songs they have ever sung, "Spirit Lullaby." Sweet Honey is extraordinary!

Songlist: I Got Shoes, African Numbers 20, Tama Tama Tamali, Little David, Play On Your Harp, African Numbers 12, Freedom Now, Run Molly Run, Young and Positive, African Numbers 8, Deep Blue Sea, Shoo Fly, Don't Bother Me, African Numbers 10 , Somagwaza, Freedom Train, African Numbers 16, Down the Road I Be Going, Look! Look! The Sun Woke Up!, Spirit Lullaby
