On Top of Spaghetti
Today we talked about the word harmony as we sang and played “On Top of Spaghetti”. The students know harmony is two different sounds that sound good together. Learning to sing harmony helps them to sing in tune and stay on their part. It develops the inner ear and lays a solid foundation for becoming a complete musician.
This is another wonderful song to teach harmony. You can create harmony by singing this in a round or by singing the rhythmic ostinato. The rhythmic ostinato would be the chords Red, Red, Yellow, Red repeated throughout the song. Try singing Red, Red, Yellow, Red while your child sings the song El Gallo and you are creating harmony with a rhythmic ostinato.
