Echo songs, in which a leader sings a phrase and the group repeats it, are some of the most fun and easy-to-learn songs for kids! These songs will have children taking part in a joyful music-making experience almost instantly, while indulging their natural tendency to imitate.
Echo songs are a wonderful way to engage children and plant the seeds of musical sensitivity and imagination. This special book, for the first time, collects the most cherished of these songs (some in danger of being lost or forgotten), enabling your family to carry on the tradition of laughter and learning that echo songs have inspired for generations.
John M. Feierabend, PhD, has spent decades compiling songs and rhymes from the memories of the American people in hopes that these treasures will be preserved for future generations. He is a leading authority on child development in music and movement and served as Professor and Chair of the Music Education Department of the Hartt School of the University of Hartford.
