Ewan with his friend from the island of Bali Indonesia.
Ewan asked a Scottish class for his name, they said 'Judy'.
Ewan said 'But he's a boy!'
They said 'Dougie'.
So his name is Dougle.
This website has been developed to assist Scottish Primary school teachers and pupils find the Scots songs they need for project and thematic work. For P1-3 and Nursery, please select For Small People. Pupils themselves can select songs or tunes, and there is information on lyrics and accompanying movements for use by teachers.
For P4 and up, there are songs and tunes with lyrics and information, there are resources for teachers. On the right are podcasts of favourite songs you can download and use.
There is a Glossary of Scots words here.
Learn more about Performers and Makers of songs and tunes here.

I have added on the resources for teachers page free PDF files of three books made for Scottish teachers and music specialists, of Song, Music and Language resources. Skelp [help] yourself.

Much of the material on this website was created for the Education Scotland website called Scotland's Songs. That website was created in 2010, and killed off in 2017. However, thanks to the Wayback Machine you can still see and may be able to hear all the Scotland's Songs material HERE.
