Simple Rounds Teach Harmony

by betinah on December 31, 2020

I love rounds! I’ve been teaching rounds since I started teaching music! They are simple and complex at the same time. There are some really funny rounds, inspiring, robust, and achingly sad rounds. What makes rounds so deeply thrilling is the way a simple melody sung at different times can turn into gorgeous harmony!

I have a lot more to say about rounds, but instead, why don’t you learn a couple classic rounds we love here at Garden Players from our alum and teacher Paige Levy.

Let’s “Sing, Sing Together” and “Dona Nobis Pacem” (Give us peace!).

Dedicated to our Garden Players kids and families, everyone in our local and world wide community, and to a more connected and inspired New Year! Sing in 2021 with us!!!
