    Music

    I play loads of different kinds of music. I also have a celtic music CD and one from the same series is of instrumental Beatles music mixed with water sounds and bird sounds. It is very calming. These CDs are actually made in Canada and you would see them in gift shops where you can go and press a button to hear extracts from each CD. I also use bits of Carnival of the animals by Saint Saens, the swan for calming,Fossils for Halloween music and the elephant for low, slow sounds. I also find that children enjoy Strauss marches and waltzes, particularly Blue Danube and the Radetzky March. But if you want something to liven up a lethargic lot and bring a smile to everyone's face then look for music by the Scottish Fiddle Orchestra. I really like one called Cead Mile Failte ( a hundred thousand welcomes). It is great to clap, tap, march or dance to. Enjoy your music.Grace
    PS If you are looking for new songs to sing, some of a religious nature and some not, try www.outoftheark.com Their songs are great with lots of child appeal. They will even write a song for you. We have kids who now think singing is really cool and ask to borrow the CDs to play in class.
