Ai Bolubolum

  • Because the melody for "Ai Bolubolum" is mostly in steps, this is a great song for modal transformation. You could try putting in the accidentals necessary for it to be a Major scale or harmonic minor scale, then branch out into other modes.
  • Can be used to practice "ta" and "ti-ti" for older beginners. Can also be used to make conscious "too" for older beginners.
  • As 'ti' is always approached by step, this is a great song for practising this melodic element.
