Sounds All Around Us / A Time For Peace
From Plank Road Publishingby Teresa Jennings
It is virtually impossible to sit still while Sounds All Around Us is being performed. Inspired by the percussive sensation Stomp, this energetic tune explores the concept that we are surrounded by sounds and music. A call and response section, a cumulative rap section, sizzling recorded tracks, and natural set-ups for movement have combined to make this a favorite of kids and their teachers all over the world.
The other song in this money-saving "two-fer," A Time For Peace, is a gentle song that is a natural for winter performances but that works wonderfully year-round. Exploring the universal theme of peace, this simple, powerful anthem is certain to be one that both your singers and audiences will remember. (from Music K-8, Vol. 8, No. 2)
