Long Legged Sailor

  • This is a terrific song and game to use to teach the melodic elements 'do', 're' and 'mi' to older beginners.
  • This game really challenges co-ordination and memory - good for many laughs!
  • Also useful for practising beat and the rhythmic elements 'ta' and 'ti-ti' to older beginners. (There is an anacrusis.)
  • You can start slow and become faster.
