Six Playful Songs by Dean Blair


  1. The Merry-go-round

  2. Mountain Chant

  3. Boating

  4. Figure Skating

  5. Jumping Rope

  6. Bobsledding

Beginner Voice, Levels 1-2. Songs on RCM syllabus: “Boating” Level 1; “Bobsledding” Level 2. For solo voice with piano. Vocal range C4 to E5. Originally commissioned by the McCurdy Foundation. The dream of this joint project between the Alberta Music Festival Association and Alberta Culture, according to Steve Wild from Lethbridge, AB, was that it would create new Albertan repertoire that could be used in festivals. Each song has multiple verses. The piano supports the melody well. Several songs introduce changing or irregular rhythms.
