“Hootin’ Rootin’ Tutankhamun” is from a set of ten songs I’ve written on Ancient Egypt. It’s a simple song which is intended to convey a few basic facts about the young pharaoh in a lively and memorable way.
This song is written in the style of a hoedown and the introductory notes can be played on the open strings of a violin. Alternatively, they could be played on a glockenspiel or xylophone.
I’ve just recently joined TpT and over the next few weeks I’ll be putting up many more of my topic related songs – many at no cost. Just click on “follow” if you’d like to be kept in touch.
The zip file contains:
1. The music sheets
2. The lyrics in a separate Word document
3. An mp3 vocal backing track
4. An mp3 piano backing track
5. Two PowerPoint versions, one of which has the backing tracks embedded (great if you have speakers attached to your whiteboard!)
6. An image of Tutankhamun’s face mask.
I hope you and your pupils enjoy singing the song! If you do you may want to check out my complete “Ancient Egypt” pack. It contains songs about pyramids, the Nile, mummies, hieroglyphics, the Sphinx, toys and games and Egyptian gods and goddesses. Finally there is another song about Tutankhamun – “The Curse of Tutankhamun”!
