Welcome to Thursday Music with Connie and Gordon!
Activities (links below)
- Warm up
- Karaoke Corner: Sing along to these favourites.
- Junk instruments: Make some instruments at home so you can play along with the other music.
- Time to move. Play the instruments along to the video or get up and dance. If you like, get a scarf to play with. This week’s classic is A Roller Skating Jam Named Saturdays by De La Soul.
- Time to relax. This week we are listening to an orchestral arrangement of a Bulgarian lullaby called Zaspalo e Chelebiiche (Chelebiiche is Sleepy).
Copy the actions to We Will Rock You to get into the mood today.
Here is a selection of favourite karaoke songs for you to enjoy singing at home.
Remember to bring your shakers if you have them and if you would like to a make a simple, fun microphone click on here.
Enjoy the selection today!
We’re going to make some musical instruments from things that you might find around the house.
Watch this video to help you think about the different ways to make sounds from household objects:
We can also find things in our recycling that we can use to make instruments. Get help from a grown-up in case there are any sharp objects.
Now watch this video and see what you can do to make an instrument to shake or tap.
What can you find that can make a good noise? Can you make a shaker or a rain stick? Or a type of drum? Ask an adult to help you. Maybe you would like to decorate it as well.
You can then use these instruments any time and also in some of the Music activities. Have fun!
Time to move!
Dance or play along with your instruments to this hiphop classic.
