The Book of Echo Songs (First Steps in Music series) Reviews
great book recommended by a music teacher friend for my music teacher son's little boy.
Great songs in this book! You probably have some of the songs (or variations of the songs) elsewhere, including in his spiral bound First Steps in Music curriculum. Even still, this is a tremendous book and every music educator should have it.
For my daughter's first year teaching. Just what she wanted.
this is a great resource for me as I am working with students in schools. Lots of fun songs to share with students.
I use music daily in my preschool Special Day Class and was very disappointed that this (these) book does not include chords, just musical notes. If I had known, I would not have made the purchase.
I do not enjoy the lyrics in these books. I bought them after hearing the author interviewed on "The Parents Journal". I have found this and a sister book on tapping and clapping songs a great disappointment. Especially if you are not musical like me, I would stick to more traditional nursery rhymes and songs that you will already know the tune to sing to.
John Feierabend's curriculum for elementary-aged music students is stellar. I would highly recommend everything he produces, with the following warning: for maximum ease of use, you should be musically trained. These books do not include chords, only melodies. Feierabend's entire curriculum comes from the Kodaly tradition, which trains young students to be able to sing at sight. If you are a confident sight singer, or an intermediate instrumentalist who is willing to put in the time learning these melodies, then John's books are amazing. For the Kodaly-trained elementary music teacher, these books create a wonderful, fun, engaging curriculum. His collection of echo songs (this book) is great for beginning singers (K-2). I even use them with my choir, to help with pitch accuracy. I highly recommend the First Steps in Music series.
