Product Description

"You’ve just discovered 24 tracks of children’s favorites specifically designed to give children extra time to get their words out! "SONGS AT MY SPEED" has been purposefully crafted to allow tykes the opportunity to sing along to their most desired, time-tested songs through the slowing of the lyrics but NOT the drive and movement of the rhythmic Beat. How? The words in many songs go from 2 to 3 times slower than usually sung while the musical backgrounds are super-creative, energetic, well designed and presented in a multiplicity of musical styles and "colors." Listeners sing along with the background voices during other songs formulated to revolve around oral-motor coordination and articulation drills made fun in the engaging musical context. You’ll notice that there are several songs with more than one version. This is either a karaoke, fill-in or instrumental rendition intended for you to get more specific with what you wish to impart to your child or class. You can fill in a word or phrase that is more on board with what you are teaching about, or change the target words and sounds to best accomplish your aim. You can create your own personally tailored tunes! Parents, grandparents, teachers, and therapists and children alike will find themselves singing, swaying, moving and sharing together through music and language."

The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep.

Beep, beep, beep. Beep, beep, beep.

The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep.

all through the town.

 

The windows on the bus go up and down.

Up and down.  Up and down.

The windows on the bus go up and down.

all through the town.

 

And the door on the bus go open and shut.

Open and shut.  Open and shut.

And the door on the bus go open and shut.

all through the town.

3. FROGGY WENT A COURTIN'

 

Purpose of this track is to help kids produce the "D" sound.

so that you can sing along with whatever target sound you like.

4. ROCKIN' OLD MAC DONALD

 

This arrangement allows for rockin' backgrounds and deceptively very slow lyrics!  Track #17 lets you sing your own animal choice and sounds, and track #19 presents a more mellow version altogether. 

 

Old Mac Donald had a farm. E  I  E  I  O.

And on his farm there was a cow.

With a moo-moo and a moo-moo.

With a moo (moo) moo (moo) moo (moo) moo (moo)

Everywhere a moo-moo.

Old Mac Donald had a farm. E  I  E  I  O.

With a hee (hee) -haw (haw). Hee (hee) -haw (haw).

Everywhere a hee-haw.

Old Mac Donald had a farm. E  I  E  I  O.

 

5. BABY BUMBLE BEE

 

Beeautiful opportunity to use those bilabial oro-motor skills!

(All the B sounds.)   The little bee takes the lead in the karaoke version of

the song (#21) so that you can sing your own version or use it to create

a whole new song!

 

I'm bringing home my baby bumble bee. 

Won't my mama be proud of me.

I'm bringing home my baby bumble bee.

Ouch! It stung me!  My bumbee bee.

 

I'm squishing up my baby bumble bee.

Won't my mama be proud of me.

I'm squishing up my baby bumble bee.

Ew! What a mess!

 

I'm licking up my baby bumble bee.

Won't my mama be proud of me.

 I'm squishing up my baby bumble bee.

Ick, I feel sick! My bumble bee.

 

I'm coughing up my baby bumble bee.

Won't my mama be proud of me.

 I'm squishing up my baby bumble bee.

oH, what a mess! My bumble bee.

 

I'm wiping up my baby bumble bee.

Won't my mama be proud of me.

 I'm squishing up my baby bumble bee.

No more bumble bees uh uh No more

 

6. BOOGALOO

 

Think articulation. Think phonics and letter-sound association on this

slightly "heavy metal" song for kids.  Track #18 lets you fill in your own

target sounds.

 

Sing a song of letter P. What's that you say?

Sing a song of letter P. What's that you say?

7. KUMBAYA

 

A world beat with heavy African flavors, this songs helps with

sequencing strings of vowel sounds together.  The way the song is

constructed, you can sing in either of two sound-sequence choices.

 

 

Kumbayaaooaah.  Kumbayah.

Kumbayaaooaah.  Kumbayah.

Kumbayaaooaah.  Kumbayah.

Ah, Kumbayaah.

 

Kumbayeeahee.  Kumbayee.

Kumbayeeahee.  Kumbayee.

Kumbayeeahee.  Kumbayee.

Eeee, Kumbayee.

 

Kumbayooeeooo.  Kumbayoo.

Kumbayooeeooo.  Kumbayoo.

Kumbayooeeooo.  Kumbayoo.

Oo,   Kumbayoo.

 

Kumbayeeah. Kumbaya.

Kumbayeeah. Kumbaya.

 Kumbayeeah. Kumbaya.

Ah, Kumbaya.

 

 

SOUND SYLLABLE SONG. (Original song)

 

Celtic in nature, this lively song offers opportunities

to practice consonant-vowel combinations. Song #20 let's you

sing the sounds of your choice.

 

Na na na. Na na na. Na na na. Na na na.

 

Da da da. Da da da.  Da da d a

 

Ba ba ba. Ba ba ba. Ba ba ba.

Ma ma ma. Ma ma ma. Ma ma ma. Ma ma ma.

Ya ya ya. Ya ya ya. Ya ya ya. Ya ya ya.

Ta ta ta.  Ta ta ta.  Ta ta ta.  Ta ta ta.

La la la.  La la la. La la la.  La la la.

 

 

I BOUGHT ME A BIRD.

 

A pretty, folky version of this song is designed to help

create animal sounds. You can use the instrumental version

#23 to sing your own animal choices, settle down children, breath deeply, stretch .....

 

I bought me a bird to play with me.

 I fed my bird up in the tree.

My bird sang dee-dee  dee-dee-dee  dee-dee-dee

dee-dee-dee-dee   dee-dee-dee-dee-dee.

 

I bought me a cat to play with me. I fed my cat under the tree. 

My cat said meow meow meow.

My bird sang dee-dee  dee-dee-dee  dee-dee-dee  dee-dee-dee-dee

dee-dee-dee-dee-dee.

 

I bought me a dog to play with me. I fed my dog under the tree. M

My dog said woof, woof, woof.

My cat said meow meow meow.

My bird sang dee-dee  dee-dee-dee  dee-dee-dee  dee-dee-dee-dee

dee-dee-dee-dee-dee.

 

I bought me a fish. I fed my fish up in the tree.

My fish said blub, blub, blub. 

My dog said woof, woof, woof.

My cat said meow meow meow.

My bird sang dee-dee  dee-dee-dee  dee-dee-dee  dee-dee-dee-dee

dee-dee-dee-dee-dee.

 

DAN DAN INVISIBLE MAN original song

 

Another opportunity to sing vowel sequences presented in

a most pirate-like style.  You can use the low-background version (#16)

to sing targeted syllables to help foster speech sounds.

 

Dan, Dan invisible man. He ate his hamburgers with jam.

Yeyaah ha ha. Yeeoh ho ho!   Yeyaah ha ha. Yeeoh ho ho!

 

He took a bath in a lake. He brushed his teeth with a rake.

Yeyaah ha ha. Yeeoh ho ho!   Yeyaah ha ha. Yeeoh ho ho!

 

He combd his hair with a wheel. He got a head ache in his heel.

Yeyaah ha ha. Yeeoh ho ho!   Yeyaah ha ha. Yeeoh ho ho!

 

He went to bed in a coffee can. He wached his face in a frying pa.

Yeyaah ha ha. Yeeoh ho ho!   Yeyaah ha ha. Yeeoh ho ho!

  

He wore his socks up on his head. He washed his clothes in his bed.

Yeyaah ha ha. Yeeoh ho ho!  Yeyaah ha ha. Yeeoh ho ho!

 

He played outside on a chair. He washed the table off with his hair.

Yeyaah ha ha. Yeeoh ho ho!   Yeyaah ha ha. Yeeoh ho ho!

 

 

SHE'LL BE COMIN' 'ROUND THE MOUNTAIN

 

How to get all those words in 3x as slowly as usual, and still have a crankin' country train travelin' beat??  Here we go!

 

 

She'll be comin' 'round the mountain (when she comes.)

She'll be comin' 'round the mountain (when she comes.)

We will wear our new pajamees (when she comes.)

We will wear our new pajamees (when she comes.)

We will wear our new pajamees (when she comes.)

Comin'  'round the mountain (when she comes.)

 

 

12. THERE WERE 4 IN THE BED (AND THE LITTLE ONE SAID.)

 

Slow and pretty with time to sing.

 

There were 4 in the bed and the little one said "move over,

move over." So they all moved over and 1 fell out.

There were 3 in the bed and the little one said "move over,

move over." So they all moved over and 1 fell out.

There were 2in the bed and the little one said "move over,

move over." So they all moved over and 1 fell out.

There was 1 in the bed and the little one said "move over,

move over." So they all moved over said goodnight!

 

 

13. HE'S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS.

 

This track offers a chance to pronounce family names using a repeated or

differing consonant and vowel.  The karaoke track (24) lets you sing about your own family members or create your own words entirely.

 

He's  got Mama in his hands.  He's  got mama in his hands.

He's  got mama in his hands. The whole world's in his hands.

 

He's got Poppy in his hands. He's got Poppy in his hands.

 He's got Poppy in his hands. The whole world's in his hands.

 

 

He's got Nana in his hands. He's got Nana in his hands.

He's got Daddy in his hands. He's got Daddy in his hands. 

He's got Daddy in his hands. The whole world's in his hands.

 

The last verse is sung gently on "ooh" so you can end

with the beloved of your choice.

Songs and More for Learning Store: Raising $ to record my NEW CD!

Hi! I'm Margie La Bella and I love writing music formulated to foster learning  - interesting melodies, clever lyrics and specially designed arrangements all with construed to heighten readiness and active participating  in learning!   My aim is to engage kids and their adults into moving, singing and playing together without even realizing that concept and language lessons are being applied!   Learning should be fun, right?!   

Here's my story: Margie La Bella, a music therapist and educator, began her career with the clarinet at age 9. Soon after she discovered that she could play by ear and that she liked to sing- and sing harmony! She began composing and performing in her early teens. Music has always been a “bright light” in her life: a source of joy, expression, connection and healing. She chose music therapy as a profession because she has seen the power of music and wants to share that with others’ hearts and minds.

Margie completed her music therapy internship in 1987 and promptly established the music therapy program with the children at the Leeway School where she continues to work. She has since obtained a master’s degree in special education.

Her CD series Move!Sing! Play Along and Learn! is a collection of original participation-based songs and dances designed to spark the imagination, playfulness, and language learning (expressive, receptive, and auditory/listening) of children. It is available to parents, grandparents, teachers, special education centers, therapists, music/dance/gym instructors and all those who are young at heart.

My life story: Why I am a music therapist

I was born a while ago, in a town called Shirley. It was Me, my mom and dad, and a whole street full of people related to each other. I mean that literally. I could never figure out why there was nobody to play with every Sunday afternoon, and why the street always smelled like spaghetti.

Being that I was the only kid on the block on these Sundays, I discovered some nice solitary things to do for amusement: puppets, drawing and writing stories. I liked to climb trees. And I used to contemplate deep things like how the stoplights knew the cars on the other side of the highway had stopped.

My music class was this: Once a month my school played a video of a hand puppet going up and down a xylophone like a ladder. That’s all until 4th grade.
We had a chance to sign up for instrument lessons and I took home a clarinet. I watched the forth grade band and told my mom and dad that soon I was gonna be on that stage.

Once I figured out how to tap my foot, I could count music beats and I was off. Well, my timing is still off. But, I have a great ear for figuring out melodies, harmonies and arrangements. I discovered it a few weeks after I met my clarinet. Didn’t do a thing to earn it. It was just always there and I am grateful. By the way, I found that, for the first time, I actually wanted to attend fourth grade -if it was a “music day.”

So music became my bright light: an inspiration, a motivation, a connection, a joy, an expression, a life-raft. I began to sing and play guitar and wrote quite a few songs. I had a great high-school music teacher who challenged me to write a composition for our jazz band. I ended up writing a seventeen part jazz chart called “It’s about Time” and it was played for the school twice! I was the featured trumpet soloist, (because I never got any solos in band.)

The reason I became a music therapist was because of what music did for me and my life. I wanted to give that opportunity and that tool to other people. Initially, I decided to be “the singing nurse” at age 17, but as soon as I heard about the field of music therapy, I was hooked.

In case you’re wondering, here is the current definition of music therapy according to the American Music Therapy Association:

“Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program.” (American Music Therapy Association definition, 2005)

Not meaning to oversimplify things, I explain it this way:

Music therapy is the purposeful, scientific application of specific musical activities and experiences with the objective of accomplishing that which is….“non-musical”.

These non-musical objectives can include the furthering of expressive and receptive language development, improvement of physical (large and small muscular) coordination, self-help skills and daily living activities, emotional healing and trauma reduction, concept development and pain management. Of course the list can go on and on as music therapists work with people of all ages and all of the conditions life can bring.

The shortest definition is as thus: music therapy is reaching and teaching through music.

Please, log on to musictherapy.org and see all that it has to offer. It is an excellent, reader friendly, informative site.

This is a good time to officially note that though these songs were written by a music therapist for music therapy aims, that they themselves in no way constitute a plug-in music therapist!! ( As a clinician, I use the series when I’m feeling under the weather, have bad allergies, or laryngitis…) Each CD can foster fun times, language and conceptual learning, problem solving, creative thought and bonding with friends!

I hope you can use these CDs and enjoy them with your own special people!
