SANGS FUR STUDENT AND TEACHER
My name is Ewan McVicar. I made this site for Primary schools and students at home.
ABOUT PROBLEMS PLAYING THE RECORDINGS
If recordings will not play while you are using Chrome, try using Internet Explorer. Or if there is on your top line address another symbol - like a bent letter 't' - just to the left of the star symbol on the far right, click on that symbol and 'Run all plug-ins'. Though that may only work for each page, sad to tell!
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.
FREE BOOKS FOR TEACHERS
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.
