A really fun song to play that everyone will know in one form or another! "Dream a Little Dream of Me" has taken many forms over the years, appearing in film, TV and it's been covered by many artists.

It's a relatively simple tune, not too fast either, so it's perfect for beginners. And I can confirm it sounds lovely on flute and (phone app) piano :D

Did you know?! On YouTube, you can find versions of this song sung by Michael Buble, Barry Manilow, Blind Guardian, the Glee Cast, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Maclaine, Beautiful South, Louis Armstrong, Doris Day, Bing Crosby, Diana Krall and many others!
