Elementary Guitar – Connie Hale

Elementary Guitar provides immediate success for adults and children who want to play guitar. The book starts with proper playing technique, and then quickly allows the student to play “real songs.”

The unique teaching sequence starts with the simplest chord, E minor. After finding the two-finger E minor position and mastering a simple strum, the student can accompany six songs. Song variety gives interest to practicing a “just learned” chord or chord changes.

Elementary Guitar is also perfect for use a guitar lab with elementary-aged children. Many of the songs can be taught in earlier grades. When songs are old favorites, students are motivated to learn the accompaniment.

Elementary Guitar fits nicely with your Orff program too!  The games, songs, and activities are designed to fit right in with classic Orff style accompaniments. Add a guitar or two to your classroom collection of Orff instruments!  Let your Orff process include the guitar.

Forgotten Treasures – Konnie Saliba

Folk songs, dances, and singing games that Orff master teacher, Konnie Saliba, has used in workshops, conferences, and Orff courses around the country are highlighted in Forgotten Treasures. Konnie’s mastery of the Orff process and orchestration makes this collection of American and world folk songs as well as some seasonal songs and singing games an instant classic. Ideal for grades 3 – 6.

“Over the years I have taught numerous courses and workshops. In each case I composed or arranged copious materials specific to my teaching requirement. Once the teaching assignment was completed, I normally put the materials away in my filing cabinet to be resurrected if needed. Recently, while sorting through this forgotten collection, I discovered a trove of songs I feel are still appropriate today. I hope teachers will find the songs contained in this book useful in instilling a love of music in their students.

The book itself is divided into four sections. “American Folk Songs”  contains many folk songs teachers know, but may also have forgotten.   “Folk Songs From Around the World,” has three songs with international flavor. “Holiday Songs” contains material useful during the holiday season.  “Songs and Games for Fun” is a collection of proven materials enjoyable for children of many different ages.
