Garden Symphony Music




1.“The Garden Symphony”

2. “…icy wind blow.”

Movement: When the music blows in like an icy-cold storm, can you hold yourself tight as you try to stay warm?


3. “…long winter’s sleep."

Movement: Can you be a garden bug, snug and asleep, then slowly wake up from your long winter's sleep?


4. “…tulips grow high.”

Movement: Form tulips with hands when the oboe starts playing. Then, reach for the sky as you gently start swaying. 




6. “…buzzy-biz-biz.”

Movement: As the clarinet plays, let's get ready to try to buzz our wings quickly, pretending to fly. 


7. “...quite a scare.”


8. “…zippy-zin-zin.”

Movement: Spin fists found and round; Slowly make your web wider. Turn circles to music that spins like a spider. 


9. “…scritchity-SCRATCH!”


10. “…blinkity-blink.”

Movement: Can you flash your fingers to Firefly's song? When the cello plays music, we'll all flash along. 


11. “…upside down.”


12. “…army of ants.”
