Hal Leonard 15 Easy Folksong Arrangements for High Voice Book/CD

This collection is designed for those students, of any age beyond early teens, in the early stages of voice study, although the arrangements are so satisfying that more advanced singers will also enjoy them. The ranges are modest, and songs have been chosen for both genders. The new arrangements are lovely, fresh and interesting, but keep the simple vocal line in the forefront. The piano accompaniments were deliberately designed for an intermediate level player. The CD includes beautiful performances of each song by professional singers to be used as a learning tool, and a piano accompaniment track for practice. Joan Boytim, the leading American expert on teaching the young voice, has added a preface about how to use these songs in the studio. Highlights: Barbara Allen • I Gave My Love a Cherry • Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier • Shenandoah • The Streets of Laredo • The Water Is Wide.

Great for all ages

By Amy from Littleton, CO on 2/15/2011 10:32:30 PM

As a voice teacher, this is one of my favorite books for very beginning voice students. It works well with middle-school, high-school, and especially adult students. The songs are very simple melodically, but have beautiful harmonies in the accompaniment, so the students love to sing them. The accompaniments are very supportive on the first verse of each song, then back off a little in later verses. The CD with singer and piano is very helpful. Sometimes, songs that are simple enough for a beginning adult may not be satisfying musically, and this book completely solves that problem. Each song is beautifully and thoughtfully composed in a way to really accent the text of these classic folk songs. I would highly recommend it.
