More about this title
Sixty-Second Songs Book 1
Sixty-Second Songs is a new and exciting initiative designed especially for young singers, offering a selection of fun, accessible and attractive teaching material. Each song has been composed to encourage enthusiasm and enjoyment within the early stages of singing, with an emphasis on simplicity of vocal line and simple supporting piano accompanists within the range of most teachers.
Sarah Poole devised and directed the Sixty-Second Song Competition, attracting entries from seven countries, with the aim of creating a new and exciting collection of songs for young singers of all ages. Three books of songs for young singers are in preparation and further details are available from email@example.com
