Autumn Leaves (Major)

This simple song can be sung as a 2 part canon!

It is great for:

  • Teaching the Major Scale.
  • Working on intonation when singing descending passages. (Students will often go flat when descending!)
  • Teaching 4/4 metre.
  • Teaching the rhythms ta, ti-ti and sa to older beginners.
