Spring-Time Songs & Pieces

“Ah! Spring is in the air!” Well, at least intermittently, with the unseasonably warm temperatures that keep popping up every so often. However, with it being March now, spring really is around the corner, and we were inspired to do another quick gathering of seasonally appropriate pieces and songs to get you excited for those gorgeous blossoms and happy chirping of the birds. Parents, ask your child’s teacher to start teaching him or her these musical gems. Teachers, it’s not too early to introduce these to your pupils, even if it means getting an easier arrangement and/or transcription!
