Ah! Si mon moine voulait danser! (Primer)

(1 customer review)

From $3.00

This French-Canadian folk song is based on a pun on the word moine, which can mean both “monk” and “spinning top.” As the top spins, the song suggests items the top should have if it were really a monk. Primer level students will enjoy this fast paced, silly piece alone or with the teacher duet.
