I'm way behind in returning comments right now, but I will catch up, probably shortly after 50/90 is done. I just can't seem to write and listen and comment at the same time right now.
I'm starting to work on writing with my little ones, which means they make basic decisions and I do the writing. Later on, they'll do more of the work. Here's a round I wrote for my 4th graders. They wanted a song about turtles in minor that was presto and included drums, violin and trumpet. I fudged on the tempo a bit, but I couldn't resist playing with the irony of writing a song about turtles that was fast, so there you go.
Turtles on their way.
Turtles heading out to play
Step by step and on they go.
When we watch they are so slow
But when you turn your back that's when turtles attack
If you try to chase them or beat them in a race
They might win
They may seem slow and pokey but they'll leave you in the smoke, see
They'll break the speed of sound, They really will astound
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
