The Hello Song can also be used at the end of the music session as the Goodbye Song. In a circle, without holding hands this time, you wave goodbye to each other; first line - left hand, second line right hand, third line - left, then right, and then both hands on the last 'goodbye everybody' with a slow spin.
With this activity you can also experiment with dynamics and distances. I like to start this song in a small circle in the middle and then between each line everyone takes a step backwards starting singing loudly and getting quieter as the distance increases.
Fun & Games.
In addition to playing the bassoon Thomas also enjoys working with children in music sessions and education workshops.
