Suzuki Saturday--Spooky Post!


Music has a powerful way of making you feel: 



Happy!  



Or Sad!

Emily loves playing songs in minor keys.  When she does this--she calls it spooky--or sad.  So we decided to make a game out of it.  We take turns playing the piece--either we play it how it is written--or we play it with  E flats and A flats.

Our happy--bright--version of Long, Long Ago
Long, Long Ago by Thomas Haynes Bayly
Long, long ago on a bright sunny day.
I met a frog on top a log.
Long, long ago on a bright sunny day.
I met a frog on a log
He jumped so high, that I thought he could fly.
He jumped so high, that I thought he could fly.
Long, long ago on a bright sunny day, I met a frog on a log.


We have been working on the Alberti bass--so we cut out the pictures again--and broke the song into sections.  We played our games!

To add to our music--we added pictures and words for the spooky Long, Long Ago.

Here is our version.  I can play the Alberti Bass--but for now--Emily just plays the right hand.  We love hearing the spooky music in our house, especially this time of year!


Long, Long Ago: Spooky Words!

Long, long ago, on a dark cloudy day.
I met a ghost on top of a post
Long, long ago, on a dark cloudy day.
I met a ghost on a post.
He jumped, that I knew he could fly.
He jumped so high, that I knew he could fly.
Long, long ago, on a dark cloudy day.
I met a ghost on a post.


I found a lot of the clip art at www.pamsclipart.com.  She has a great selection for personal use!  Enjoy this spooky time of year!
