Music Makes Me Sing!

by Teresa Jennings

Celebrate the lighter side of music with this cute and simple little song. It's perfect for Music In Our Schools Month or anytime you want to share the joy of music!

The real beauty of this song is that it is designed to include movement and activity based on the lyrics. Each phrase includes a suggested action for students to do. These are all indicated right on the music. As always, you can adapt any of the words or actions as you like.

While the recording of the ensemble on the CD helps the song with its nice Latin flavor, the piano part is playable. Make a live performance more interesting by adding a few percussion instruments, such as shakers or rhythm sticks.
