How to Make Music Fun 4 Kids-Part 2

April 3, 2013 in Music with Kids, The Singing Nurse Music

Who wants to make music time a blast for kids?

Keep it simple…

Keep it joyful…

Keep it fun…

Keep it stress free…

Creating music and keeping it simple makes for a stress free and fun music time. Who can agree making a joyful noise and being a little silly is a great way of expressing yourself and having a blast while you do it?

I hope you will stick with me as we continue through this series. You may not feel musically inclined and can appreciate some encouragement. I would love to help with that. Many of the songs I have written came about while playing on a simple keyboard like the Casio SA-76.

I know you can do it, every way is the right way, and sure to bring some joy and pleasure to your kids.

The Proverb still rings true : “A merry heart does good like a medicine”.

Today’s post will cover:

*Easy ways to pep up an old familiar song

*Using simple keyboards: beats, patterns and chord progressions

In the video below is the song “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”. I used the “pattern” # 45 that the Casio SA-76 describes as a “Free Session”. This means it is a pre-recorded chord progression. It is a little song with no words. How cool is that, all you have to do is press “pattern” and the number 4 then 5 and press the Start/Stop button. Put the tempo @ 5 and the song is ready just as I did in the video.

I looked up the words to “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and did not realize that it has such cool words. All to do with stars of course. I made up a simple melody(the kids can even help with that-a future post), I added a simple chorus with hand motions for the kids to sing.

So glad you stopped by. Music keeps flowing here from The Singing Nurse and friends. Can you share how you are having a musical blast with kids? Or do you have a questions?
