We can play on the Big Bass Drum ( Sing-along Song )

Music for young children comes in the form of subscribed YouTube channels in this generation of tech-savvy parents, although there still are parents who love singing for their children. Channels such as Super Simple SongsBarefoot Books, and TheLearningStation to name a few, churn out the classic nursery rhymes to brand new, original songs that are catchy, addictive, and ‘boogielicious’.

Music for young children may be repetitive and annoying, but children learn from repetition. “Songs that include fine and gross motor skills all help even with language development as well as rhythmic development and acquiring musical appreciation” (balancedmama, December 28, 2012)

Parents can also enjoy music for young children. I heard this song from one of my Big Boy’s favourite CDs, and was overjoyed to find a good video with it. This song not only introduces the various types of instruments, but also the sounds of these instruments. This video also includes animated people moving according to the music, which is great and easy for children to follow. So parents, why not teach your children this song for some extra bonding, and your children can learn new knowledge at the same time?

 

 

 

We Can Play on The Big Bass Drum

Oh, we can play on the big bass drum

And this is the way we do it

Boom, boom, boom, goes the big bass drum

Boom, boom, boom

And that’s the way we do it

Oh, we can play on the violin

And this is the way we do it

Fiddle-diddle-dee, goes the violin

Fiddle-diddle-dee

And that’s the way we do it

Oh, we can play the flute

And this is the way we do it

Toot, toot, toot, goes the flute

Toot, toot, toot

And that’s the way we do it

Oh, we can play the xylophone

And this is the way we do it

Chink, chink, chink, goes the xylophone

Chink, chink, chink

And that’s the way we do it

Oh, we can play the piano

And this is the way we do it

Dong, dong, dong, goes the piano

Dong, dong, dong

And that’s the way we do it

Oh, we can play the triangle

And this is the way we do it

Ding, ding, ding, goes the triangle

Ding, ding, ding

And that’s the way we do it
