Fractured Folk Songs
arr. Valerie Roth Roubos

FJH2198 / 5.95

Elementary/ Late Elementary
Inspired by Saturday morning cartoons, this amusing collection presents familiar folk songs with an added (quirky!) twist–the music and words are slightly changed to make them fun. Some titles include: Home on the Strange; Hush, Little Monster; I’ve Been Waltzing on the Railroad; Plop! Goes the Weasel; and more. Written with accidentals (not key signatures), these solos are two pages in length with lyrics. A fun book for a 1st-2nd year pianist, it could also be used as a “sight reading at your lesson” book for your higher-level students.
