The Cool Lieder Song Book for schools is available to download free below.

Containing 10 specially-selected songs by great composers, newly translated, with a simplified accompaniment for teaching purposes alongside the original. Teaching notes are provided for each song.

An associated INSET project, Hot Tips for Cool Lieder, is available for teachers who may feel they lack the confidence, or who have difficulty in finding and using the resources, to sing and lead singing.

Both projects are led by choir trainer and music educator Sue Hollingworth, assisted by students and/or alumnae of Leeds College of Music. For further information contact
