New Songs Available for Ruhi Book 3, Grade 1 & 2

The Ruhi Institute has made available for download, recordings of the songs contained in the new lesson plans for Grades 1 and 2 of the Teaching Children’s Class book.

These songs can be downloaded for free, and you can also download a page which contains both the lyrics and the chords for each song – that’s that’s pretty cool!

These materials can be used in both children’s classes and other educational activities, and The Ruhi Institute also permits the songs to be translated and recorded into various languages, provided that no recording be sold or used for commercial purposes in any way.

You can access the songs here: http://www.ruhi.org/resources/songs.php

  1. I’ve just released free MP3 songs for all of the quotations that the children memorize in Ruhi Book 3 Grade 1 (both the original Book 3 and the soon-to-be-published, revised Book 3 Grade 1. There are 29 songs in all.

    You can download the songs at http://www.LosNiceGuys.com (click on Ruhi Book 3 Songs).

    Here are some comments from teachers that have already begun to use the songs in their classes -

    “Dear Larry. Thank you for making such a good album, I did not know about this site until about 4 months ago when I wanted to start a new children class, so I went searching for new materials and what I was mostly looking for was the quotations put to music and here I found it, and ever since I have been trying to share it with all my friends through facebook. My children class student is a six year old and she has almost learnt every one of the quotations by heart, they are so easy to learn and fun for children, every time I play one of the songs, she gets up and dances and makes actions along with the quotation, and this itself makes the class so interesting for her and more exciting for her to attend every week. Thank you once again.” -Anisa Kasiri

    ‘Dear Larry, Your songs are wonderful and add so much to children’s classes. Having the verses set to melodies is very helpful for memorizing for everyone, however, the children especially respond to music. The melodies are sweet; easy to learn and to sing. Truly “a ladder whereby souls may ascend.” Thank you so much for all of your time and efforts to do this!’ -Cathy Plasencia
