About the ‘Move It’ Product Range
Move It is a part of the Welcome to Music Early Childhood Series. It is a collection of songs, dances, musical stories and instrumental activities to encourage children ages 2 to 10 to be creative and express themselves through musical improvisation. Easy, fun, appealing and accessible to all.
Meet Dazza, the Dinky Di Aussie who loves to ‘Say G’day’ in different languages, ‘Banjo the Bunyip’ who has fun playing instruments and the Aussie animals in ‘My Backyard’. Join ‘Rocket Sam’ and his band of space creatures as they sing and dance their way through the milky way. Dance up a storm in ‘Move It’, Jazzy Jive’, ‘Jumpbump’, ‘Fruity Samba’ and the Hebrew song ‘Yesh li Yadayim’. Play in the percussion band in ‘Freeze’, sing with good mates in ‘True Friends’ and relax with scarves in ‘The Ocean Song’.
With opportunities to sing rounds, move, and play instruments this will be a welcome addition to your classroom or home music collection.
