Instruments and Music Songs


For musical instruments week, this is one of the songs we use.

The Finger Band (sung to the tune Here we go round the Mulberry Bush)
The finger band has come to town, come to town, come to town. The finger band has come to town so early in the morning.
This is the way we play the drums (insert musical instrument), play the drums, play the drums. This is the way we play the drums so early in the morning.
Change the instruments and act out how to play them.

(ending to the song) The finger band has gone away, gone away, gone away. The finger band has gone away so early in the morning.


Let the kids write their own song.

Draw a 5 line staff on paper, let the kids use a bingo marker to make 8 dots on and off the lines. Play the notes they made on the piano or xylophone.
