My “pop songs for school ensembles” collection Pinterest
Are you looking for some new songs for your students to play or sing?
I mentioned my popular Clever Music Videos Pinterest board in an earlier post and today I thought I’d share my Pop Songs for School Ensembles collection. I started this collection because whenever I need a 3 or 4 chord song that has lyrics that will pass the “school-friendly” test, I couldn’t think of any! Having this Pinterest board means I have a handy list of songs anytime I need them.
I’ve collected these songs over time from hearing them on the radio, or sung by my own kids or suggested by other teachers. It’s also been really useful to have a central location that allows me to store the links to Youtube clips.
About the songs
Most of the songs use just 3-4 chords, which makes them suitable for guitars and ukeleles. You may find that some of them need to be transposed to make them more student-friendly, but if you look online, it’s likely that someone has already done the work for you.
Please make sure you use your own judgement before deciding to use the songs at your school.
Some schools are more relaxed about lyric content (and that of the video) than others. Only you know what will be acceptable for your school and your students.
