April's Mini Music Corner is all about Easter and Maraca's. This months picture is an Easter Bunny playing a drum, as drawn by Ken Cookson.
The April newsletter has a song, a colouring picture, some jokes and a competition based on the month's window display. You can download the newsletter or collect one instore.
The April Artwork ages 1 - 7
The instrument for April is the Maraca, we use brightly coloured Maraca's as we sing Hickory Dickory Dock. The maraca follows the mouse up the clock as we raise our voices inline with the music. The clock strikes one and he mouse runs down, mimicked by the maraca, and the tick tock carries on.
The sheet music can be downloaded from our sister site, Music Chakra.
The maraca's are available in day-glo green, yellow, pink and orange either from our online store or in the shop, often found outside the door on bright sunny days .
