At Home in Harmony, Song Book and Teaching CD
Do you want to sing more and wonder where to begin? The At Home in Harmony package is for you! Author Meg Chittenden has assembled a a beautifully illustrated songbook filled with wonderful songs and descriptions on how to sing them, along with a CD of the songs with a link to a phrase-by-phrase listening loops on her web site to learn as methodically as needed.
At Home in Harmony is a beautiful book, also illustrated by Meg, with a warm-hearted, “don’t-worry-about-it-just-keep-singing” soul to it. She knows how uncomfortable it can be if you feel as if you can’t sing. And she knows too how comforting a song can be, to uplift or offer celebration for a day, a festival, a bedtime, a meal, or even a moment.
Experiencing joy together is deeply unifying and a wonderful way to build unity in a family. Meg's book is full of songs that range from joyful to soothing to festive. You can listen to each part of the song as a separate track, and then listen to all the parts sung together. Songs vary in level of difficulty so there are songs for beginning singers and young children, as well as for more advanced singers. You can add in multiple parts and rhythm elements, or simply enjoy singing the melody with your family.
Our family enjoys practicing the songs on long car rides. It's a pleasant way to pass the time that all ages can participate in. You may find that as you sing these songs together, that come from cultures and languages spanning the globe, that you too will feel an increased sense of peace in your own family and home.
