Calling all world brothers and sisters! Travel our musical globe with WORLD PARTNERS! Like the patches of a family quilt, the folk songs of the world's children tell their stories. Arranged by master music educator, Cheryl Lavender, the twelve “patches” in this collection are shared with the hope that global cultures and traditions might be better understood and celebrated by our world siblings and ultimately come together into the “quilt of humanity.” For instantly successful and “can-do” harmonies, these kid-tested folk songs are arranged with catchy, original partner songs and canons. Adaptable for classroom or concert, all songs are reproducible and include piano/vocal arrangements, teaching tips and reproducible songsheets with phonetic pronunciations. For a richer performance opportunity, many songs feature Orff and percussion parts, as well as easy-to-learn folk dances. For added value, there are teaching objectives linked to the National Standards for each song! Available: Teacher Edition (with reproducible pages), Performance/Accompaniment CD, Classroom Kit (Teacher and P/A CD). Suggested for grades 3-8.
