Description

For hundreds of years, people of all ages have enjoyed dances accompanied by singing. In "The Book of Song Dances," John Feierabend presents a collection of Song Dances that have roots in American heritage and a few from other countries.

Each dance is organized by type (single circle, double circle, square dances, etc.) and includes complete dancing directions. Melodies with lyrics are notated on the treble clef staff.

This beautifully illustrated collection is for anyone wanting to preserve this great folk dance tradition, use great songs to teach musical concepts, or merely have a great time enjoying music.
