Bonjour Mes Amis

  • A lovely song to being and/or end a lesson.

  • The only words in this song are 'hello my friends'! This makes it very easy to adapt to any language! (The download is in French and English.)

  • Substitute the word 'goodbye' for 'hello' to make it a farewell song.

  • Also useful for:

    • preparing and practising the rhythmic element 'too-oo-oo' (dotted minim).
    • preparing and practising the melodic element 'fa'.
