PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Perfect for the start of a new year! Super easy to use and applicable for all learning situations with no specialized instruction in music necessary! As a music education specialist, I use this fun and engaging song at the beginning of every lesson grades 1 through 5 to strengten students' ability to match pitch, percieve the passage of four beats, and blend and balance within a group. The song is also a great time for assessment of participation and vocal development, and allows opportunity to develop improvisational skills among young musicians. As an Iteneret teacher seeing many students as multiple schools, learning student's name can be a huge obstactle to building relationships. This song has become a life saving way to refresh students names before each lesson begins. The simple form and repetition allow everyone to participate. Students take turns singing "My name is (Johnny)"- Whole group echoes back "Your name is Johnny." Students who are unable to sing in front of a group, or unable to vocalize at all, can still participate by giving a call as a rhythm or body motion. The zipped file includes a live classroom demonstration recording, a mp3 accompaniment with piano, guitar, drums, and trumept, no voices, a powerpoint file witch includes classroom displays of the notation, 10 additional activity guides, and links to the North Carolina Essential Standards, as well as an orginal Sibelius File of the notation, and an Audacity File so that users can adjust length or time as needed. The accompaniment recording is suitable for 24 students. If any changes in tempo or key need to be made, I will also be happy to create changes on demand and deliver updated files for free for purchasers. Thank You for looking and I hope you enjoy,
Rachael Lewis
