A Young Singer’s Journey Workbook Series
This integrated method will assist your students in developing the foundations of musical literacy by creatively fusing theory, ear training, and sight-singing with songs and warm-ups. Each volume comes with a workbook as well as online audio access to warm-up exercises and extension sight-singing that get harder as the series progresses.
A Tapestry of Music
This mixed chorus arrangement of A Tapestry of Music, which was initially composed for a children’s choir festival, won first place in the Claremont Chorale’s Composition Contest. High school and community choirs will find it to be inspirational. Try it at graduation or during American Music Month. This stirring composition by Sherry Blevins, whose words and melody have a strong message, would work well with choirs that can handle difficult pieces.
Home is in My Heart – Unison
Tom Shelton and Camilla Shelton Pruitt, a brother-sister duo of composers and lyricists, have once more gifted us with a masterpiece for unison elementary voices. Try it for the Festival of the Christian Home, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or any other time of thanks and thankfulness with flute and piano accompaniment.
Available in SATB and 3 Part Treble voicings.
Moment By Moment – Unison
A musical poem emphasizes enjoying each day “moment by moment,” discovering delight in each new day, and discovering joy in music. It is consistently upbeat and happy. A piece from the “Accent on Young Voices” collection and another beautiful melody by composer Sherry Blevins.
