More Digital Felt Board Songs

These are the felt board songs I did at the Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose. I usually play the first verse on one of my woodwinds with the image showing, then sing the words, and on the third run through of each song I switch to the lyrics and invite everyone to sing with me. I try to establish a beat or swaying motion before every song. That way I can get people to learn the song through audiation (hearing the song in their head before they begin to sing), feeling it in their bodies, understanding the content of the song visually through the felt board image, hearing the words sung and seeing them written. Everyone sings along by the end, even if they don’t know the words, because this is such an information-rich way to introduce a new tune!
