MANYWAYS # 18 'A-ROVING' (SS and optional Whistle/ Piano/Guitar)

Easy (Grades 1-3)
2 minutes
World music
Large mixed ensemble
Instrumental parts
Not available

Chosen by Primary teachers, this is a great 'fun'song for kids. It's sufficiently naughty to raise the eyebrows of prudish adults! As with all MANYWAYS songs, this can be a unison and piano/guitar song, an unaccompanied 2-part song, a unison song with whistle etc., etc., etc. There is no 'best' or 'suggested' way of doing it. Everything depends on the circumstances in each separate classroom.The whistle part is equally suitable for Violin or Clarinet….in fact a totally separate arrangement is possible by substituting instruments for voices. Above all, it should be fun to perform.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
