I was trained using the Kodaly method for teaching general music. As a teacher’s aide at the Third Street Music School Settlement, I got to witness first hand how to teach music concepts using these traditional songs. The music and lyrics are printed in a readable, clear format. They include songs like ‘Peep Squirrel’, ‘I Wonder Where Mariah’s Gone’ and ‘I Bought Me a Cat’.

These two books not only have a treasure chest of songs, they categorize them so you can find the perfect song to teach a specific concept.
