Tonal Tuesday - Sing a New Song

As we explore ways to change our musical thinking this summer, we have focused more on listening. 
How long has it been since you sang nursery rhymes.  London Bridge, Ring Around the Rosie, Jack Spratt Could Eat No Fat are some that come to mind.
A couple of weeks ago, our Oxford County Museum School participated in Down on the Farm day in conjunction with the Ingersoll Cheese Museum.  A piano built right in the town of Ingersoll was donated to the Museum School and it was my privilege to play a few of those fun songs while we lead the children and parents in singing.  We realized that the younger children really didn't know these songs so common to our younger days.

So I suggest you get cracking and find some nursery rhymes to sing.  There are tons of these available on YouTube which is great.  However, make certain you are really singing.  This one has the words so sing along.
