  • TRANSITIONS! Make your lessons more musical! One of the many topics in my online or live teacher training is smooth, easy transitions with singing and participation between activities. Knowing how to handle transitions in mommy and me classes, preschools and elementary settings are an important part of the lesson planning. Here’s a glimpse of a transition with a group of 4-6 year-olds. Colors are Gliding – shows verse two only. This song and other transition songs can be found in Kids Make Music, Babies Make Music too.

    Shosholoza is found on the Brilliant Beginning CD (use your member discount when ordering) and is a popular song for our “exploration time” using gathering drum or hand drums for younger classes.

    This week’s download features this song for BAG recorder players. (As requested from one of our awesome members!).
