Music for the Community

 
Welcome to our Music for the Community page! Since we can't take our music out to local nursing homes and libraries at the moment, we're inviting you in to enjoy it here instead. Each day you'll find a new student performance on this page, along with some info about the composer or instrument - and sometimes words too so you can sing along. 

If you're interested in a particular category, you can sort performances by student age, instrument, singalong music, composer and so on - click on the orange tags under the text. We hope you and your family will enjoy watching our students share their music! 

To have each week's videos and accompanying info sent to your inbox*, please subscribe via the orange button.

*Videos are delivered twice weekly; you can unsubscribe at any time, and we will never share or sell your info.

Day 47 - Lightly Row

Pianists age 6 and 8 play Lightly Row

 
This is a favorite of beginners everywhere, and we show it here with right hand only, then with hands together, so you can hear how the left hand adds lower, deeper tones (see also here). Like most of these singalong songs it has a  simple construction with a lot of similar material, making it easy to learn.
 
There are many singalong possibilities for Lightly Row! Here are a couple of more traditional ones:
 
(A1) Lightly row, lightly row, up the river we will go;
(A2) Mississippi, Mississippi, in our boat we go, go, go!
(B1) One, two, three four, five, let’s go,
(B2)One, two, three, four, five, lets row, 
(A2) Mississippi, Mississippi, in our boat we go, go, go!
 
(A1) Lightly row, lightly row, gently down the stream we go,
(A2) Birds are singing while they’re winging, on their way and to and fro.
(B1) See the fluffy clouds up there, 
(B2) Building castles in the air.
(A1) Birds are singing while they’re winging, on their way and to and fro!   
 
Or - some students love this one!
 
(A1) Hey there mouse, in your house, better stay there in your house!
(A2) Hey there mousie, in your housie, someone’s waiting there for you!
(B1) Pretty kitty loves you so, 
(B2) Thinks you’re just so tasty - oh!
(A2) Hey there mousie, in your housie, someone’s waiting there for you!
