Light The Candles All Around The World / Dance With Your Hands
From Plank Road Publishingby Teresa Jennings
Perfect as a concert closer, Light The Candles All Around The World offers everything you would expect from a universally-themed seasonal piece. It can be performed either in unison, or with an optional solo or second part. The song begins gently and quietly, but builds throughout to a marvelously inspiring ending. Some teachers have told us that their students and audience members were clapping and in tears by the end of it. Include your own candle-lighting ceremony and you have a guaranteed winner for your winter program. (from Music K-8, Vol. 7, No. 2)
Jazz, the macarena, and a lively Middle Eastern motif combine in Dance With Your Hands to get your kids on their feet, moving and singing. The song is entirely unison and includes a special dance section for your performers to show off their best moves. The teaching notes are extensive and offer suggestions for performing the macarena or variations of it. The outstanding recording features the sounds of a cookin' jazz ensemble, complete with enthusiastic Latin percussion. Give your students an outlet for their macarena skills and they'll thank you for it. (from Music K-8, Vol. 7, No. 4)
