You'll never guess what this song teaches. Seriously, we enjoy bringing you songs that have a dual purpose – fun and learning! Especially when the lesson involves anything musical. In this case, your students get to recognize and apply the humble accent to their music. Such a tiny little symbol, it's often missed, so this is the perfect chance for you to help singers pay closer attention. Not every note in our little song uses one, so they have to really focus. Where the fun comes in is with the accented "Huh!" sound they get to make at the end of each phrase. If you don't quite understand the written out explanation of this on the music, just give a listen to the recording. No doubt this was the particular favorite moment of our studio singers, especially the boys.
