We hope you are all safe and well and keeping busy! This week we are sharing some more fun ways to keep the beat using our bodies and things you might find around the house.
We have included some of our favourite YouTube videos to play along with, as well as some new videos from our friends in the National Youth Choirs of Scotland.
Have fun and enjoy your Easter break!

Do you remember how to use your thinking voice? It's the voice that makes no sound at all.
We have used it in lots of our songs, but here's one you might remember, where you can use your thinking voice along with lots of other voices. Sing it with your family and see what other voices you can use?
Have you got your singing voice?
Yes I have my singing voice!
Have you got your speaking voice?
Yes I have my speaking voice!
Have you got your whisper voice?
Yes I have my whisper voice!
Have you got your loud voice?

Some of you might remember this song! Click below for the video and see if you can do the actions while singing along.
The actions might be slightly different to the way we did it in school, but maybe you could make up your own actions!

This week we are including a video from our friends at the National Youth Choirs of Scotland, with a new song that you will learn in no time at all!
For this activity, you will need 2 plastic cups or tubs, but don't worry if you don't have any, just get 2 things you can tap together!

Here is one of our all time favourite videos to play along with: In the Hall of the Mountain King from the Peer Gynt Suite by the Norwegian composer, Edvard Grieg.
