This song has already helped countless students memorise the function of having a dot beside a note. Amazingly, all the musicians and singers on this recording are kids whose ages range from 8 to 16 years old. Together they formed a sensational kids band called HizKidz. Many of my students have been inspired to pursue music more fervently when they found out that this song was recorded by kids only.
Watch HizKidz perform on national TV on the following links and you will understand why Jamie Cullum (Bridget Jones' Diary 2 Soundtrack) said they were the best band made up of kids that he had ever heard or seen.
Lyrics for: A Dot Beside a Note
A dot beside a note, lengthens the note, by half its' own value (repeat 2 times)
A dot beside a rest, lengthens the rest, by half its' own value (repeat 2 times and add echoes)
