Little Spring Song

This simple, unsophisticated song with a limited pitch range, is great for:

  • Preparing and practising the melodic element 'fa'.
  • Teaching the rhythmic element too-oo-oo (dotted minim / dotted half note).
  • Teaching 3/4 metre.
  • Analysing a 'type' of ternary form: 'A', 'A variant', 'B', 'A variant'.
  • Singing about Spring, Summer and Winter.
