I've Got A Car

This is one of my all-time favourite songs for engaging middle to upper students.

It's great for:

  • Inner hearing.
  • Checking how well students have internalised a steady beat - do they get faster in the sections where words have been taken out?
  • Checking if your students can internalise pitch - do they sing in tune when they come in after sections where words have been taken out?
  • Singing in pentatonic scale.
  • Teaching the melodic element 're'.
