Preface by Carol Barratt.

Here's a great new collection of showtunes, folk songs, children’s songs and pop songs, carefully chosen to bring fun and musical variety to the primary school classroom.

Some will be familiar, some will be brand new surprises, and some will be half-forgotten favourites from the past now given a new lease of life.

All songs are arranged for easy piano and the piano parts can also be heard on the two accompanying music CDs.

Lyrics are printed out for every song but are also available as free downloadable pdfs for easy projection for multiple printing.

Includes teachers notes.

Let’s get our schoolchildren singing again with The National Songbook!

Accompaniments are badly written, and the CDs are of very poor quality

Staff Reviews

Staff Rating What a joyfully eclectic collection of songs. As well as traditional tunes this has lots of songs that capture the zeitgeist, such as a bit of Abba (who thought Mamma Mia would be so all conquering) and "You Raise Me Up" - a favourite of X Factor auditionees everywhere! I like the added info on the origins of each song and the suggested activities give a good starting point for classroom discussion. The CDs of backing tracks are really handy, there's rarely a Pianist (or Piano) around when you really need one!

Rating Review
Customer Rating A very useful resource for use in school. just what I was looking for.

Customer Rating Contains a refreshing mixture of old and modern songs with easy accompaniment for schools. Inclusion of CDs very useful for non-pianists - a very worthwhile buy.

Customer Rating This is an excellent selection of songs with very simple accompaniments in the style of the old A and C Blackused by schools in the 70's. The CD's are useful too. My one criticism is that some of the songs are missing the odd section.

Customer Rating Some of the songs were pitched a little high for small voices.

Customer Rating A lovely selection of songs. Very reminiscent of the songbooks we used in school when I was there in the 70's with a few modern songs for added appeal. Great to have the accompaniment in CD format for a great singalong anywhere!

Customer Rating Some excellent songs, however I was incredibly let down to discover that some of the CD backing tracks did not cover the entire song, instead only playing one verse instead of two for example. Very frustrating, especially as I work in a school where nobody is able to accompany on a piano.

Customer Rating I bought this for my seven year-old grandson to sing along with and am extremely pleased with it. The selection of songs is much broader than I expected and reminds me of the Singing Together radio programme of my own primary school days, which taught me so much. The playing level is just what I need (easy for a Grade 6 pianist) and the only negative for me, as an older person, is that the lyrics are printed on a grey background that is not easy to read quickly(thus four stars, not five). I shall buy the second volume as well.
