We’re Gonna Make Some Music Today

I use this song to start off all of my music classes.

I think routine and repetition is very important to a child’s learning.

This is one of the first children’s songs I intentionally
wrote. It’s great because both children and their parents
alike love the upbeat, catchiness of this tune. I love it
because I can incorporate different songs, concepts, and
instruments in this one song by adding verses.

Hope you enjoy it!

Below the lyrics is a recording for your listening enjoyment 🙂

We're Gonna Make Some Music Today!
Hey, hey what do you say?
We're gonna make some music today!
Hey, hey, what do you say?
We're gonna make some music today! 

We're gonna play some instruments, 
And we're gonna sing some songs.
We're gonna make some music,
Come on and join along! 

I said, hey, hey what do you say?
We're gonna make some music today!
Hey, hey, what do you say?
We're gonna make some music today!  
(You can sing the following in any order you like, omitting verses if you please)

Let me hear your shakers/maracas...
Can you shake them up high (up to the sky!)
Can you shake them down low (down to the ground)
Can you shake them really fast? 
Can you shake them super slow?
Can you shake them on your head?
Can you shake them on your cheeks?
Can you shake them on your knees?
Can you shake them on your feet?
Can you shake them on your shoulders?
Can you shake them on your chin?
Can you shake them on your tummy?
Can you shake them on your shins? Hey, hey what do you say? We're gonna make some music today! Hey, hey, what do you say? We're gonna make some music today! Let me hear your castanets... La cucuracha, la cucuracha, La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la La cucuracha, la cucuracha, La, la, la, la, la, la, la. La cucuracha, la cucuracha, La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la La cucuracha, la cucuracha, La, la, la, la, la, la, la. (Shall we play a-da-gi-o? or Allegro?) (Shall we play piano? or FORTE!?) Hey, hey what do you say? We're gonna make some music today! Hey, hey, what do you say? We're gonna make some music today! Let me hear your bells... Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way, Oh what fun it is to ride, In a one horse open sleigh, hey! Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way, Oh what fun it is to ride, In a one horse open sleigh, hey! Hey, hey what do you say? We're gonna make some music today! Hey, hey, what do you say? We're gonna make some music today! We're gonna make some music today! We're gonna make some music, today!
