  • For people both young and old who find great joy in singing together with others – and are not afraid of more challenging games! The ideas can be used with upper primary and secondary schools as well as in choirs.
  • There are folk songs, partner songs, canons and part songs from around the world accompanied by more complex metric and rhythmic patterns than in the previous volumes.
  • Dance, ball games, clapping games, stick passing games, cup passing games and even a Philippine tinikling dance!
  • It is our belief that being engaged in playful and uplifting communal music making not only creates a love for singing but that Singing Games have, over the years, proven to be highly efficient in the development of general musical skills in the most complex way.
