Beecroft Garden Mass Singalong/ Playalong/ Dancealong
I made this song and video to cheer up all the Beecroft community during this difficult time. But what would be even better would be if you would all join in. Please video or record yourselves dancing / singing / playing along so I can edit out me and include much more of you!
So children, families and staff please record yourselves singing, dancing or playing along to any verse and send it to me. As video files can be quite big, it would be best if you pick a section of the song to join in with. If you want me to use the sound of you playing or singing I will mix it in, but please use headphones so you just record you and not the sound of the backing track. Children, please don't forget to get your parent/carer's permission first.
Lyrics and musical parts can be found below or go to https://kahands3.wixsite.com/website where i have posted tutorial videos for anyone who wants to play an instrument.
Please email your parts by Tuesday 12th May to firstname.lastname@example.org I look forward to hearing what you've done.
