A delicate melody swirls and twirls like drifting snow in this tasteful arrangement of a traditional Japanese school song. The three short Japanese phrases (and several English words) are easy-to-learn and bring to mind icy images of wintertime. Simple parts for glockenspiel, triangle, and sand blocks can be heard on the Asian-inspired SoundTrax CD and are also included in the publication.
