Circle To The Left

The song (also known as 'Old Brass Wagon') is great for:

  • Teaching the rhythmic element 'tika-tika'.
  • Teaching the melodic elements 'low la' and 'low so'.
  • Practising 'left' and 'right'!
  • Continued work on beat (when insisting on stepping on the beat for the game).
  • Having fun!!
