After realizing that kids in warm climates don’t really sing much about winter activities like snowball fights, sledding, and building a snowman, The No Snow Blues was born. (If you live where there is snow, take a look at The Snowman Blues here on tjomusicsongs.com. Same tune, different words).
Effective in either unison or two-part, The No Snow Blues can be performed with the digital Backing Track (sold separately) or with piano accompaniment. A great way to introduce 12-bar blues and reinforce form to elementary/middle school students, your kids will have fun with this catchy, bluesy song. Take advantage of the opportunity to feature a soloist. Add some easy choreography for a super-fun addition to your winter performance. Very easy to learn, your students will know this very quickly!
“I want to build a snowman and I’ve got the blues. I watch the TV shows and the snow’s so pretty. I want to wear a coat and boots and look so cool, but how can I look cool if I’m all sweaty?”
“…Where I live it never gets too cold. I wear shorts and flip-flops all year long. The sun is always shining and there’s no chance of snow. I’d better book a ticket to the freezing North Pole!”
Vocal range: Part I (melody and harmony) D4 to F5; Part II (Melody) range is D4 to Bb4.
Note: To sing this song in unison, sing only Part II.
Suitable for grades 2-8 and up.
Cost: $40.00 Digital Sheet Music (print as many copies as you need for your students in one school) and Digital Backing Track
