Music K-2: Week 1 - Lesson 1 & 2 - "When Louis Armstrong Taught Me Scat", by Muriel Harris Weinstein
(1) In music class we've been playing rhythms on the drums and with rhythm sticks, but there are also rhythms that we can sing... If you go to the site below, you can hear a story about a man named Louis Armstrong who was famous for "Scat Singing" or singing rhythms using silly words and rhymes.
(2) Now that you know what it is, can you make up a short silly song using Scat singing. It can be about anything... bubblegum, ice-cream, your family, your cat or dog or other pets.. if you think of one, have your parents send it to my email (mmeredith@nebcityps),
Boom - ba-diddly - da, Boom-be-diddly-doo, I can hardly wait to hear from you!!
