At last! Musicbuds is here offering an exceptional range of original and well-crafted resources underpinning common musical objectives whilst focused on prominent EYFS themes. Aimed at all Early Years’ practitioners from class teachers, music specialists, teaching assistants, playgroup leaders to EAL and SEND support teachers.

The 'la-la' part of the song was written so that everyone could join in. The kinaesthetic approach – ‘doing’ as you sing was an easy way to demonstrate language (whilst singing it). The musical inspiration for the music was the circular Greek songs often performed at weddings! Can be used as a stand-alone circle song/part of Circle time; a physical song to develop bilateral integration (using two hands/feet together in a coordinated manner e.g. clapping/stamping) or reciprocal movements (where first one hand or leg and then the other carries out the same movement in a rhythmical way) or as Song 6 in our 30-minute music and movement session.

Going Slow to Fast (Song)

Going Slow to Fast (Song)

This is a song which teaches tempo/rhythm by first starting slowly, and continually building up the speed in 4 different sections until the tempo reaches a crescendo, at which time, playing stops. I've used it where I encourage students to play along with a percussion instrument, sing-a-long to the various tempo changes, as well as practice stomping on the ground/running in place.
