  • Depending on how the rhythm is written, this song can be used to prepare and practise 'ties' or the rhythmic element 'syncopa'.
  • A great song for preparing and practising the melodic element 'low ti'.
  • A fantastic song for practising keeping a steady beat. (Even the older students will need to concentrate to stop themselves from speeding this one up!)
