Sondheim to Publish Children’s Songs with Challenging Time Signatures

posted in: Uncategorized | 0
Sondheim’s writing again, this time it’s his second book of children’s songs.

Expected to hit music shelves this summer, Stephen Sondheim releases a collection of original children’s songs entitled, Songs That Will Teach You To Count.

The concept, according to press notes, combines Sondheim’s “love for strange and confusing time signatures, with his desire to teach young minds about music.” Songs include “Teeny Odd”, “Finishing the Bonnet”, and a completely re-worked version of “Send In The Clowns”.

Surprisingly, Sondheim’s previous collection of children’s music, Internal Rhymes That Will Make You Cry, is a NY Times Best-Selling Children’s book and he hopes to achieve similar success with this new project.
