Winter 2020 Support pieces
Playlist for Trainees is attached below (all the way at the bottom!)
Here is some info on each song, and any support pieces including any PDFs for this session (note that there are not any video trainings (yet!):
- El Corazon: this song is new and we will do it as an instrument song. I am thinking that it would be fun to find small garbage cans to make a little garbage band for it! No training as of yet!
- Dolores: last we did this song, we just used it as a stand up song with scarves. We may come up with something better, but for now, we'll keep it as this. No training as of yet!
- Ah Sailor: Last time we did this as both a cumulative #1 song, and with egg shakers. This time, I think that we'll just keep it to egg shakers. We specifically follow the structure of the song in how we shake the eggs. Audio training is attached. One thing that I don't think was mentioned in the training, is that this is a Caribbean Song, so talk a bit about how to move your body to really feel that Caribbean essence!
- Dona Nobis Pacem: This is a part-singing song where each group sings their part over and over. I am attaching an audio of the harmony parts, plus a loop of just the first part which you can use to practice over, or if your students are really struggling, you can play that for them to sing along to!
- Little Liza Jane: This is done as a singing game where each family contributes a 2-line part about their child in Mommy and Me, (and you come up with a handful of them for the kids in childcare centers). Audio training is attached.
- Elmo and the Lavender Moon: We do this with the sand blocks. The old Playlist for Trainees said that I had a PDF training, but I cannot find anything on my computer. So, for now there is no training attached.
- This Little Light: We do this as a lullaby with flashlights. (or without flashlights) I have attached the lyrics and chords for ukulele (it is a super easy song!)
- Kpanlogo: This is done with the bucket drums and we incorporate lots of rhythm patterns that we learn and then play on top of the song. This takes some time, so we usually use it for at least 2 songs of the lesson plan. I have attached 2 audio trainings and a PDF- 1 is a long one about how to set up and introduce these drums, with reminders of the Kpanlogo patterns at the end, the other audio training is specific to Kpanlogo and how the rhythm patterns fit into the song. The PDF lists the patterns and gives more info on the back.
- Zum Gali Gali: This is an Israeli work song that we are doing with rhythm sticks. Audio training and PDF Trainings are attached.
- Songbirds: This is a first song with ostinatos (part singing with each person singing their part over and over) Audio training attached
- Yuki: This is a Japanese lullaby (meaning snow) done with either a glockenspiel or the metallophone. I haven't played it in a while, so may revise the attached training PDF, but I am attaching what was in my files. It is the lyrics and notes played on the glock.
- Whatever the Weather: This is done with the gathering drums and we play around with the drum to come up with ways to make it sound like different weather- wind, rain... then make the right sound for the verse you are doing and sing the song. Attached the lyric sheet and an early audio training. Feel free to embellish as works for you!
- Turn the World Around: Song in 5/4 time to do with the parachute. As you use the parachute reinforce the beat by only shaking on the 4 and 5 beat. Go up and down on 2nd part. Lyric sheet is attached.
- Tue Tue: Clapping game and part-singing song from Ghana. Attached a lyric sheet and a training audio
- Trip to Bavaria: German stand up dance song. Attached audio training

- Train is a Coming: Stand up song done with the bandana train and the train whistle. There is no training for this but I am attaching a training to New River Train, which is done in the same vein, (just follow these lyrics)
