For example: if you stare at the "rows" to the right, "strange things" will happen to you visually as well. Rows ARE strange!
Premiere: March 1967, Raleigh NC, in the Raleigh public school system series, conducted by the composer. This work was first published by The (now defunct) American Book Company: in their New Dimensions in Music series © 1970. This work is now available here as an Adobe PDF file.
[N.B. There is a new company now which is named the American Book Company (in the Educational Instructional materials, Software etc. area) They would appreciate not being contacted about this earlier, now out of print series of textbooks for children K-12.]

This work was written primarily to be used as classroom teaching piece for grade school music classes and/or for children's choral performances although it has been performed in public by choirs at various levels including being programmed as novelty works by college choirs. It will probably be necessary for the melody to be doubled by an instrument to help with the rather difficult intervals.
Rows are strange
A scale? NO!
