FC: Childhood Connections with Call-and-Response

1: In the introduction, you were to think about how children in the USA develop their musical abilities as well as reminisce on your own musical memories. Chances are that many of the songs you sung often as a child were either part of a game, from a favorite TV show, or made to help you remember something important.

2: Childhood games -Ring Around the Rosy -London Bridges -Do Your Ears Hang Low?

3: TV Shows These are only a couple of TV shows whose theme songs I knew by heart when I was young.

4: Childhood Songs -Alphabet Song

5: Children all over the world incorporate music into their lives in different ways. In the African nation of Ghana, children learn game songs (much like our childhood game songs); however, many of these game songs have a specific form.

6: In music, form is the structure and design of a composition, incorporating repetition, contrast, unity, and variety. Many of the African game songs take on the form known as call and response, which has a question-&-answer pattern in which a group responds to a leader. An example of a call-&-response game in our culture would be Marco Polo.

7: Can you think of any other call and response game songs that you may have sung when you were young?
