One is able to learn about a country's rich culture through folk songs. Here is a wonderful resource not only for instrumental/voice, classroom music teachers and students, but anyone who enjoys folk songs!



Some ideas:

Sight-singing/playing (recognising intervals), keyboard harmonisation, improvisation, rearrange for ensembles, theme and variations (create your own variations)
