The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid Of Anything
by Linda D. Williams
pub by Harper Collins
I have done this book in several clinics with several different clinicians. This song seemed to work the best for my classes. I do it in d minor, and ask the bass xylophones to just play low D and A on the beat, then I ask all other instruments to improvise an accompaniment.
For the things the little old lady runs into, and other stuff:
Little old lady walking: Temple blocks
wind: either a chime tree or one of those plastic tubes you swing around that makes the whooshing sound
Two Big Shoes: large drum
Wiggling pants: either vibraslap or flexitone (or both together)
Shaking Shirt: either maracas or shaker eggs
Two white gloves: the slap stick (or whip)
Tall Black Hat: I use Agogo bells (high low)
Scary Pumpkin Head: Gong
knock on the door: wood block
opening the door: rachet
If you had something creaky, you could add that for the Little Old Lady rocking in her rocking chair.
