What educators are saying

Such a great bundle of activities to work with this song! Great ways for extension, and to make it applicable for older students.


This wonderful Liberian folk tune is loaded with teaching and performance possibilities. It inspires music exploration, cultural awareness, drumming, singing, and playing recorder, uke, percussion instruments, and/or Boomwhackers.

This Musi-Kit includes the following:

Two vocal (and/or recorder) arrangements, one simple, one more complex (flexible for grades 1 through 8), which can be sung in unison or in canon (round);

An original rhythmic chant which can be performed vocally, as an instrumental rhythm canon, or layered as ostinatos to accompany the melody;

Colored Boomwhacker® melody & chord pages, ukulele chord chart, black & white notation for recorder/voice, enlarged rhythm charts for the chant or ostinatos;

Two pages of cultural connections and a three-page, detailed teaching guide.

Each facet of this kit can be taught and performed as a stand-alone piece or combined in a performance sequence to involve multiple skills, instruments and abilities. Note: the recorder/vocal notes include low C through A for the simple arrangement, and low C through high E for the more complex arrangement.

You and your students will love this!
