Sing a Song, Play Along a collection of eight vocal and instrumental pieces, for voices, recorders and Orff instruments (glockenspiels, xylophones, metallophones, and small percussion) is dedicated to children and young people.

Singing and playing together develops musical ability, as well as motor and social skills. It also enhances motivation and enjoyment of music making.

The songs have a popular flavour, and the instrumental pieces illustrate the rich possibilities of Orff instruments. Some pieces are based on ostinato patterns to be performed in a cumulative way. Although the pieces are easy, it is important to use the correct mallet technique so that a rich sound can be achieved and the variety of timbres in the ensemble can be fully enjoyed.
