Today’s video includes a bouncing song. If you have older children and some space, they may prefer to gallop and walk during the second song, rather than sitting on your lap.
Day 36 – Welcome, Rig-A-Jig-Jig and Goodbye Everyone
I will be posting the next video on Monday. In the meantime, I’d be delighted if you’d revisit the previous videos. At this early age, children derive the greatest pleasure and musical benefit when they revisit familiar songs. Also ‘singing games are important not only from the point of view of developing musical skills, but also as an excellent vehicle for the complex educational process’ (Katalin Forrai, Music In The Preschool, 1988, p.36). If you’re curious about who I am and the philosophy behind my teaching, please check out my ‘Meet Janey’ and ‘About Kodály’ pages.
Please keep your videos, photos and comments coming as they brighten up my days.
Keep safe and have a good weekend.
