Oscar Aged Two Sings the “Hello Song” and “One Man Went to Mow”

Oscar aged two is singing the “Hello Song” and “One Man Went to Mow”. It is very evident in the moments of silence that Oscar is hearing the song in his head. It is as if he has an internal metronome which helps him to sing in time adding key words in the right musical spaces. Notice his very tuneful, musical singing. He accents key words in the “Hello Song”. He uses his toy just as we use the little marionette clown to greet each child in our Musical Play class. He is beaming with pride and delight as he sings. Oscar is a classic example of a music child who plays musically and takes delight in each musical moment. His family are key players. Even though his English grandmother has returned to England, she has left him the precious gift of her well loved family song “One Man Went to Mow”. Songs and music games are passed on through families and build precious memories of relationship based musical play.

 


Testimonials

Julie has been wonderful to work with! With her years of experience and expertise she came up with a tune for a song within minutes of hearing about our project and it’s key messages! Julie composed lyrics that fitted our purpose perfectly- she knew what to repeat and emphasise. The tune is wonderfully catchy so children pick it up so quickly. Julie is passionate and skilled and we are so grateful to have had her working with us on our project.
