Spring Music Lessons, A Garden Theme

  • Farm Songs and the Sounds of Moo-sic is great for a GARDEN theme!

    All Around the Gardeners Bench: Easy Orff, an opportunity for solos (pitch matching/singing in tune), a time for props (tinsel for the rain, scarves for the yellow sun, silk flowers or pictures of flowers), movement, singing in Major and Minor keys. Also great for a little drama – act it out!

    That’s the Life of a Farmer: Let the unpitched percussion and movement tell the story of how hard the farmer has to work during spring planting!  Teachers and students love the Power Point or Smart Board visuals that accompany this activity. You will find this in Lynn Kleiner's Music Box Downloads in the VISUALS category. Go to https://lynnkleinersmusicbox.com/store

    I Plant a Little Seed: I like to extend the solos at the end to include what they grew and what they made with what they grew. For example, “I grew an avocado, I made guacamole.” Or “I grew tomatoes, I made spaghetti.” This song is perfect for easy Orff for your youngest (they can play all the parts together) or older (separate out the parts, choosing specific instruments on specific parts).


    John the Rabbit from Music Box Downloads is great for Orff, unpitched percussion, solo singing and recorders. Get music and notes on all these activities for John the Rabbit free to members in lynnkleinersmusicbox.com. Non members can purchase a John the Rabbit activity pack in www.musicrhapsody.com/shop

    There is a set of Spring Lessons with many of these favorites and many more. Music Box members: be sure to use your discount code or buy direct in Music Box downloads.
