Cool Bananas

This fun 2 part canon features:

  • Some chromaticism ('fi' [sharpened 'fa'] and 'low si' [sharpened 'low so']).
  • The rhythmic element 'ties'.
  • Bars of rest (1 bar rest in two different parts of the song - great for working on keeping the beat the same even in silence!). You can teach 'whole bar rests' with this song.
