When one of my students or music therapy clients is working on a goal, I like to infuse it into the session as often as I can…starting with the hello song. I wrote this particular greeting tune for a child who was learning specific speech sounds, which is how I chose the targeted “silly sounds” in the verses.
“Silly Sounds Hello” provides opportunities to address these objectives:
- Improve ability to greet peers
- Improve vocalization
- Improve verbalization of letter sounds
Make this song your own by adding new sounds based on the needs of your own students and clients. Better yet, let them help you write those new verses!
