Little Acorns pre-school playgroup
The playgroup obtained funding to buy some percussion instruments and to bring me in for the summer term. Here are a few tracks showing what we were able to achieve in the time - all the children are under four years old. I was particularly pleased with the rainstorm, but you can hear in all the pieces that they have learned to listen, wait and anticipate and that some are already developing good rhythm skills.
'Everybody play' - this piece welcomes each child and gives them a chance to play solo as well as together
'I hear thunder' - the children know this piece so well it was easy to add percussion, with the instruction to play loudly for thunder and softly for rain
'We're making a rainstorm' This popular warm-up for theatre groups and choirs can also work for 3 and 4 year olds. And they loved it!
