Chansons des p'tits fripons en mode pentatonique - Singing Rascals Pentatonic - French language version
The Singing Rascals series is ideal for young children from the age of about 18 months and is the foundation for starting to learn an instrument using the Colourstrings methodology. The songs and rhythms in the books are repeated right through the instrumental courses giving children instant familiarity with the compositions.
Parents should sing the songs with their children, looking at the pictures and encouraging gentle rhythm exercises such as clapping, marching or waving. As children become more familiar with the songs, sol-fa hand signs can be introduced or singing the songs using the sol-fa notes.
The French edition has all the same songs as the English version with new words written by Nathalie Wizun. This edition was produced in conjunction with the Conservatoire de musique de Genève.
