I’ve written close to 200 songs over the last four years or so, many of which I’ve long since retired from my repertoire. But there are 12 songs – starting with “January” and ending with “December” – which I have no plans to retire anytime soon. Each month, I introduce new songs and activities to my students in our music therapy sessions, but one thing they can count on is singing about the current month.
Originally recorded back in 2008 with my old, outdated recording equipment, I recently decided to update “The Months of the Year” album. And while I was at it, I put together a lead sheet songbook containing the lyrics and chords for all 12 songs. Each includes information about holidays, special events, the number of days, and more in that particular month, all wrapped up in a repetitive, easy-to-sing package.
When you download the album, you get not only all 12 songs, but also the instrumental (acoustic guitar) versions – 24 tracks in total – as well as the lead sheet songbook in PDF form. All of that for $12, which can be paid securely via credit card or PayPal.
(Another option to consider is becoming a subscriber to Listen & Learn Plus! Current subscribers have access to the lead sheet songbook and downloads of the original album, included in the $36 yearly membership.)
