For music educators - By music educators
Greetings to All,
I'm attaching a song I use at the beginning of each school year - during the first week of band rehearsals.
This song brings laughter and smiles during the beginning rehearsals of the year. If you want to use it, I welcome you to do so. (Note: The students are to sing this song, not play it.) Once the students can sing the whole song, we then have fun singing it faster and faster: a fun, simple activity that rejuvenates the young musicians for the hard work in the months to come.
Sixth graders really like it! 7th and 8th graders like it because of the memories they have from the beginning of their sixth grade year.
Happy 2012-2013 school year! Pamela Rezach
