Description

This much-loved book is a collection of over one hundred songs, some well-known, some less known, collected over the years by experienced Waldorf teacher Brien Masters.

They are graded for different ages from Class 3 (age 8) to Class 8 (age 14) and grouped into festivals and seasons. They include rounds and four-part songs, and musical notation for recorders and other instruments.

This is a wonderful resource for Steiner-Waldorf class teachers, and any teacher or parent looking to introduce music to their classroom or home.

Reviews

'This book is brilliant. It's perfect for Waldorf teachers, homeschoolers, and students alike. It is chock-full of simple, haunting pentatontic songs to sing or play on the recorder.'
