As you go about your daily activities, we invite you to enjoy, on your own or with others, recordings of the 32 songs and 13 chants (45 selections in total) from Music Play 2, Part A. These songs and chants represent a variety of Western tonalities and meters, as well as a variety of styles. Thirty-six selections are performed without words, five are performed with words, and four are performed with words for only part of the selection.
Created to inspire playful movement, listening, singing, and/or chanting—during car rides, at home, or in early childhood or elementary general music classes—the Learning Album features the 45 songs and chants from Music Play 2, Part A with added opportunities to extend your audiation, singing, chanting, and moving using a “whole–part–whole” approach. As such, each track begins with an opportunity to audiate the meter, tempo, and tonal and/or metrical context of the selection followed by opportunities to audiate the selection’s constituent parts. Each track ends with another repetition of the whole song (accompanied by its chord root melody or bass line melody) or chant. Download the album notes and track listing below for more information.
