Three it's a magic number

Yes it is, it's a magic number

Because two times three is six

And three times six is eighteen

And the eighteenth letter in the alphabet is R

 

We've got three R's

We're going to talk about today

We've got to learn to

 

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

The song is a beautiful call and response song that lends itself to percussion or body percussion. Harmonise with a chord on a bass xylophone playing quarter beats to maintain a steady beat.

Dear Mr Collins

 

Kindly forward this to :/ parent.

 

Dear Parent

 

I appreciate you bringing this to my attention and I am sorry Subah didn't like the song. It is a beautiful Maori song sung by children around the world and often performed with sticks.

Hold mallet with first knuckle and with thumb on top Grip it slightly under half way under the stick Holding the mallets together will show you if you are gripping at the the same height Use your wrist for bouncing the mallet Aim for the middle of the stick Stroke should be kept small. https://youtu.be/GszY16mhaGI
