Earth Water Fire Air - A Waldorf Songbook

Songs and music by Peter Patterson.

The songs and pieces in the book are a selection from the author’s own work with young people over a period of more than fifty years, from kindergarten to high school. They are not intended so much for the specialised music lesson but for any of those times when five or ten minutes of music making can bring a joyful element into both classroom and home, into subjects as far apart as mythology and mathematics.
Peter Patterson studied music at Durham University in the north of England, and at the colleges of music in Freiburg, south west Germany, and Lucknow in northern India. He has been a Waldorf teacher since 1960, originally in Britain, then later in many other countries, particularly around south east Asia. He is still teaching in the Titirangi Rudolf Steiner School near Auckland, New Zealand, where he has lived since 1982. He suspects that he might be the world’s longest serving Steiner teacher and plans eventually to contact the Guinness Book of Records to make a claim! In the meantime he is still writing new songs for young people. Since childhood he has also enthusiastically studied the world of insects and spiders and wonders how that has influenced his song writing!
