Originally conceived as warm-ups or to break up the routine of repertoire rehearsals, many loop songs are also suitable as concert songs. Divided into four levels of difficulty. Contains two and a half hours of music, including: Swing, Latin, Afro, Gospel, R&B, Funk, Pop, Rock and World music. CD includes performances by The Swingle Singers. The real gem of Loop Songs is the detailed information chart in the front. This tool will be invaluable for a young teacher. Each song is listed alphabetically, and the list is broken down into categories of style, level of difficulty and performance time...As I reviewed these pieces I found myself constantly humming and moving to the different meters used. This series of exercises will bring excitement into a warm-up setting.--American Music Teacher
