We have been exposing the children to different musical genres since our concert lunches began. We have listened to Classical Music from Mozart, Steel Drum music I purchased in Barbados, sitar music from India, and their very favourite, the Wizard of Oz Soundtrack.
|Our Concert Lunch Selections|
At Christmastime we listened to some Christmas music including a cd of children's Christmas songs, Quithmuth (kid's Christmas), purchased at Restoration Hardware many years ago. The children could not get enough of the song "I Want a Hippopotamus For Christmas". They thought it was very funny and we all found ourselves singing it throughout the holiday season.
I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
I only like hippopotamuses-es
And hippopotamuses like me too!
The children react differently to the different styles of music. You can see them swaying to the Indian music and moving their bodies to the beat of the steel drums, and we all love to sing the songs from The Wizard of Oz.
