The song collection of Helga Oberländer accompanies small children from 4 years of age from the carnival season to Ascension Day and Whitsun. It also contains birthday and dance songs. In contrast to most children's songs, which are characterized by triad formation and refer to a basic tone, the songs printed here are held in fifth-intensity tuning and swing around a central tone. The dreamy and enchanting character which is achieved through this corresponds in a special way to the emotional world of the small child. For your information: First musical instruments Children love fine sounds and almost always choose pentatonic tone sequences, the "primeval music of mankind", which always sounds harmonious. This is why pentatonically tuned instruments are particularly suitable for early musical education.
