Here are today’s musical activities from Emmeline.
Vocal Warm-Up: Tarzan
“For this week’s vocal warm-up we are going to be pretending we are Tarzan or maybe an ape. Take a deep breath in and vocalise whilst beating your chest, someone might be able to help you with this. It makes quite a funny noise. We will explore making this noise at different pitches and different volumes.
Days like This: Part 1 – Verse 1
To continue our wide variety of Makaton Songs this week we are going to be doing ‘Days Like This’ by Van Morrison. This song is a brilliant one for signing along to and also moves at a more steady speed than Dance Monkey did last week! Today we are going to learn the first verse. The words for the first verse are;
When it’s not always raining there’ll be days like this
When there’s no one complaining there’ll be days like this
When everything falls into place like the flick of a switch
Well my mama told me there’ll be days like this
